Katherine (Kay) Williams-Puls, formally of Palm Springs, California, was carried home by her Lord and Savior on Monday, October 3, 2016 in Battleford, Saskatchewan. Kay was born to Anton and Annie (Lukowich) Cherwinski in Redfield, Saskatchewan. She was a devout Catholic, loving wife, an amazing mother, and proud grandmother. Kay was a familiar face at the Battlefords Union Hospital, first in nursing and then in the Admitting Department and Switchboard, for 37 years. Always the optimist, she faced life’s challenges armed with positivity, faith and a smile for everyone. She was a tireless worker, fearless in adversity, the face of grace in times of trouble, had a great sense of humour and was an amazing cook.

Kay was predeceased by her parents, brother Frank Cherwinski, husband, Joseph Williams (1993), son-in-law Henri Lacoursiere (1998), son Dean Williams (2015), and many cherished brothers and sisters in-law. Her husband, David Puls passed away on November 1, 2016. The family request donations be made to the Battlefords Union Hospital Foundation.
