Fred Ket­ten­bach’s legacy hon­oured

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Patrick Ko­lafa

The Grace House has re­ceived a hand up thanks to the gen­eros­ity of a lo­cal woman, in mem­ory of her son.

Mary Ket­ten­bach do­nated $10,000 in se­cu­rity funds to Grace House.

Joseph Legacy, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Grace House ex­plains that Mary told him her son Fred owned farm land sur­round­ing Drumheller. Fred was a strong sup­porter of the com­mu­nity, and on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions he hired the ser­vices of Grace House, and was pleased with their work. He passed away in 2009.

In July of this year, Mary Ket­ten­bach made the de­ci­sion to do­nate the funds in mem­ory of her son.

“Mary set the plan in ac­tion and on Oc­to­ber 31, Grace House re­ceived $10,168.38 in se­cu­rity funds in which we will turn to cash and put in our build­ing fund for now to help se­cure our goals of fu­ture ex- pan­sions, and in turn play our part in hon­our­ing the mem­ory of Fred Ket­ten­bach,” said Legacy.
