  1. Katie and her family have been long time friends of the Falk family. Katie always had a beautiful smile on her face and a warm welcome to anyone in her presence. It was my pleasure always to be in her company. She was often found at daily Mass at St. Anthony’s Church and a light and inspiration. An amazing wife, mother, and friend. The Holders have a special place in my life and heart and Katie will always be remembered. God bless her family at this sorrowful time and may she rest in peace.

  2. You were the most amazing grandmother and great grandmother to Lenna and everyone. You always had a smile on, great advice and gave the best hugs! Because of you we all grew up with such amazing memories. I’ll never forget all the fun we had, watching wheel of fortune and all your shows.

  3. Katie was a wonderful support and volunteer for Meals on Wheels North Jersey, delivering meals daily to our clients in her building. We are so sorry for your loss.

  4. Katie,
    You were such a good friend to our dad, and you were an amazing friend to us as well. We pray you are dancing in heaven and feeling peace.
    Joyce and Nancy
