Keating, Katerina Schramke

Saginaw, Michigan

Our loving mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and dear friend passed away on Thursday, November 10, 2022 at her home. She was 58 years old. Katerina Anna Schramke was born on May 13, 1964 in Flint, Michigan to Kathleen Anne (Bernath) and Jan Joseph Schramke. 

She graduated from Saginaw Valley State University with a degree in Medical Laboratory Science. She was a proud alumnus and an ambassador of the profession. 

Katerina was fun-loving, generous, a free spirit who always had an uplifting word to share with those around her. She saw the best in everyone and helped others to see it in themselves.
