Katie Lynn Green – August 16, 2017

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

Scott Green’s girl, Hayes, McCay and Paityn Green’s sweet momma, Stephanie and Mike Moss’s daughter, Dirk, JT and Brad Petersen’s sister, Katie Lynn Green, went into the forever arms of her Father August 16, 2017.

Katie lived a life that truly embraced the fullness of joy that Jesus had given to her.  The Lord wove Katie together and presented her to us in Council Bluffs, IA on September 26, 1972. Through this He made her into a person that would always be a shelter for those in need of refuge.  Katie wiped away countless tears of those who hurt, put her arms around thousands of people in need of hugs and had endless words for those whom needed a touch from the King.  Words can never express how deeply Katie loved.  Her man, her kids, and her friends never went a day without knowing the goodness and kindness of God that daily flowed through her gentle spirit.  Even in death, she had a reach that went beyond what anyone could ever imagine.  Katie was 44 when she became reunited with her father who had previously joined Jesus at the age of 47.  Katie had a special place in her heart for her grandpa, John Vallinch, who had previously passed away and was preceded in death by Katie’s grandma, Cay Vallinch.  About 3 years ago, Katie and her family moved to Panhandle.  Since being there, they have been embraced like family from their church The River, Paityn’s school teachers and coaches, as well as their many, many friends that gathered around to battle with her when she began to get sick.  One word that seems to describe Katie by everyone that knew her is warrior.  Katie is a mighty warrior that has left a lasting legacy to be passed down from generation to generation.  She will always be loved.

Katie’s celebration will be held at Hillside Christian Church Auditorium, 6100 S. Soncy Rd., at 1:00 o’clock, Monday, August 21 and will be led by Scott and Katie’s Kingdom mentor and best friend Rick Trafton and Mark Urquhart.  Worship led by Bradley Graham.   Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.
