Kathyrn M. Borcherding, 75, of Guttenberg, died Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017, at the Elkader Care Center. 

Visitation was Wednesday, Feb. 1, at Tuecke-Allyn Funeral Home, Guttenberg and one hour before services at the church.

Funeral services were Thursday, Feb. 2, at St. John's Lutheran Church, Guttenberg, conducted by Rev. Shane Anderson.

Kathyrn was born on Feb. 8, 1941, in Guttenberg, the daughter of Realto and Florence (Gull) Meisner.

Kathyrn attended and graduated from the Guttenberg High School with the class of 1959. On Valentine’s Day, 1961, Kathyrn was united in marriage with Loren Kregel at the United Methodist Church in Guttenberg. This union blessed Loren and Kathyrn with a son, Paul. For over 35 years, Kathyrn worked as a cook at the Guttenberg School. During those years, Kathyrn received great joy interacting with the school children. Many of the kids even referred to her as Grandma. Kathyrn took pride in her work as she truly enjoyed her job and she was notorious for her cinnamon rolls and brownies depending on which generation you talk to. 

On Nov. 4, 1998, Loren Kregel sadly and suddenly passed away. Years later, Kathyrn found friendship and compassion with a friend named Larry Borcherding. Larry and Kathyrn were later married on March 5, 2005. Kathyrn was a member of Dorcas at St. Johns and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. 

Kathyrn is survived by her husband, Larry; one son, Paul (Cindy) Kregel; two grandsons, Devon and Nicholas Kregel; two step-daughters, Tammy (Scott) Meyer and Kim (Tim) Torson and their families; one brother, Ron (Chris) Hyde and many more relatives and friends. 

Kathyrn was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Loren; one brother, Larry Meisner; and two sisters, Alberta Sargent and Laura Cullen.
