Katie Konkin

Late February 10th, 2012 Katie passed away peacefully in her sleep at the Trail Hospital after a brief illness. She was born in Trail as Katie Zoobkoff on May 31st 1939. Her parents were William Zoobkoff and Mary Kalmakoff who now lay at rest at the Brilliant Cemetary. She was also predeceased by her husband Fred Konkin and her younger brother Bill Zoobkoff. She grew up in Blewett but moved to Nelson shortly after marrying Fred. She is survived but two loving sons, Donald Fred Konkin of Lions Bay, B.C. and Kenneth James Konkin of Van Anda, B.C. and her younger sister Myrtle of Prince Rupert, B.C.. The family initially lived in Rosemont before moving to the Northshore. Katie lived in Nelson her entire adult life and was an avid gardener and loved nature. She was a strong independent woman that had many friends of which we are grateful for all their support, care and kindest wishes. We’d also like to thank the doctors and nurses for their best efforts to save her. In accordance to her wishes, in lieu of flowers please send donations to the CNIB. This institute was instrumental in allowing Katie to maintain her independence during these past few years that enabled her to live a full and productive life. She will sadly be missed by all that knew her.
