Obituary

Katherine Maida Martha (Morton) Brantner, 95, of Greeley passed away May 4, 2019. She was born December 31, 1923 in Denver to Jess Allen and Susanna (Stamm) Morton where she was raised. Being an only child, she was lonely but belonged to dance teams and participated in school activities.

Early years of education were spent at St. Catherine’s in Denver, graduating from the 8th grade and then moving on to Westminster High School where she graduated in May 1942.

After graduation, she married Joseph William Brantner on June 6, 1942 at St. John Catholic Church in Denver.

Katherine always wanted a large family and on May 8, 1943 she welcomed the first of her eight children, never being alone again. She loved her children and was very active with them, whether in 4-H or teaching classes.

She loved farm life, which started in 1946. She was a member of the Evening Bells Extension Club, DGD Club, Grange and Alter and Rosary Societies, volunteering and participating with Kersey seniors and a member of St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Platteville since 1946.

Though life gave her many highs and lows, she never lost faith in God. In fact, it seemed to strengthen her. After Joe retired from farming, they moved into Greeley in 1978 and enjoyed a wonderful home in the mountains of Red Feather Lakes.

She loved to travel and was fortunate to see Ireland. After Joe passed, she was able to travel more frequently, wearing out one walker.

Katherine made friends wherever she went and was always helping others in need. She was always smiling, happy and truly interested in the others she met.

Survivors include her children: Robert, Paul (Sue) Brantner, Mary (Michael) Opatril and daughter in law, Cindy Brantner, 15 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great-grandchild, nieces and nephews and her Godchild, Annie Neuman.

She was preceded in death by her husband in 2004 and children; Susan, John, James, Kathy and Mark.

Visitation will be from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, May 8th at Adamson. Recitation of the Rosary 10 a.m. Thursday, May 9 followed by Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. at St. Nicholas Catholic Church, Platteville. A reception will follow with burial at 1:30 p.m. at Linn Grove Cemetery.

Memorial gifts may be made to “St. Nicholas Catholic Church” in care of Adamson, 2000 47th Ave., Greeley, CO 80634. Friends may leave condolences at AdamsonCares.com.

My late husband, Frank Lester Boulter, admired the Brantner family! They suffered such tragedies but kept on going, helping others in the process. May you all feel blessed by the memories of Katherine as the loving matriarch she was! Ila Leavy, formerly of La Salle, CO - now in Greeley.

Katherine was a rock and inspiration to everyone who knew her. My life was very blessed to have her and Joe in it and I will always hold many fond memories of both in my heart. We traveled the world together and she will be missed by each. I'm so glad I had the chance to see her on Thursday before she passed, to give her that one last kiss good-bye. Rest in peace and someday we will meet again. Love You~~Mary Fox
