Kathleen Marie Sacht was born March 27, 1922 to William Charles Sacht and Arlie Maude (Berger) Sacht in Clark Fork, Idaho.
Kathleen had two loving sisters and four loving brothers. Ramona (Monie), Laurayne (Toddie), Marlyn (Bud), Forrest, William (Bill) and Raymond (Shorty).
Mom lived in one of the most beautiful states in the country. Mountains, streams, and untouched territory. She would tell us stories of her swimming in the river, picking Huckleberries & Morel mushrooms and of her brothers fishing and hunting for their food. They had no running water or electricity and the boys had to sleep in the shed with the cats and of course a wood burner to keep them warm. It was a simple and wonderful time. She would tell us about the Indians coming down the mountain about once a month to trade their blankets and jewelry for food. They would let mom and her best friend ride their horses and they would play with the children. She had many wonderful memories of her childhood.
She met the love of her life, Fredrick, while babysitting his brother’s children. He had come from Hurdsfield, ND, to work in the Silver Mines. They were married January 6, 1942. They left Clark Fork, ID, in 1946 and moved to Hurdsfield, ND, where they stayed for 1 year and moved to Dundas, MN, to farm. In 1950 they gave up farming and moved to the Twin Cities. Dad retired in 1976 and they moved back to Hurdsfield, ND. Her loving husband passed away in 1978. She moved to Sabin, MN, in 1993 then Dilworth, MN, and moved into assisted living at Ecumen of Moorhead, MN, where she resided for the last 3 years. Her 1st priority was her children. She taught us to love, to care and to be kind. She will be forever in our hearts and greatly missed.
