Mary Katherine (Banthem) Hoernig , 77, passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday April 14, 2021.
Katherine was born on August 25, 1943, in Baltimore, Maryland. She was the third in the line of siblings, Alvin Banthem and Charles Banthem.
Katherine loved spending her days on her farm in Whiteford, Maryland, tending to her flock of chickens and giving regular pets to the horses that grazed on the rolling pasture. She would often reminisce of all the animals that she had on the farm, all of which gave her great joy. She was a voracious gatherer of knowledge and had a large and varied collection of books, magazines, and media.
Katherine was a kind soul with a spitfire personality. She is survived by her eldest child, Jason Hoernig. Her daughter, Leasa Hoernig and three amazing granddaughters.
