Kathryn Jorgensen

Kathryn Jorgensen, infant daughter of Cory & Katie (Larson) Jorgensen of rural New Rockford, ND, died Saturday May 25, 2013 at Carrington Health Center, Carrington, ND.

Kathryn Marie was born May 21, 2013 at Jamestown Regional Medical Center, Jamestown, ND.  Kathryn, although her time was short, made a huge impression on the lives of others. Her big brothers, Charles (3) and William (2), were so proud of their baby sister and were the only two to deliberately make her smile. The love she gave her family is more than we could have asked for and she was very loved by her family and gave them so much pride. She was a beautiful and perfect baby girl and God has much bigger plans for her than we could ever imagine. She was able to help others through tissue and heart valve donations so she is also a heroine and will always be remembered by those whose lives she has touched.

She leaves her parents, two brothers Charles and William both at home; grandparents: Gary and Caryn Jorgensen, McClusky, ND, Wesley and Susan Larson, Leonard, ND; her great-grandparents: E. Duane and Clarice Nelson, Turtle Lake, ND, Betty Larson, Lisbon, ND, and Norlene Reberg, Valley City, ND; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Kathryn was greeted in heaven by her great–grandparents, Charles R. Jorgensen, Wanda Jorgensen, Woodrow Larson, and Erling Reberg; a great uncle Tim Reberg; and her cousin Heather Presser.
