Kathleen J. Roy, 79, of Langdon, ND, passed away Sunday, December 11, 2022, surrounded by her family at Sanford Health in Bismarck, ND.
Kathy Joy Carlson was born January 9, 1943, in Hallock, MN, to Robert and Minnie (Augman) Carlson. She grew up in the area and graduated from Hallock High School. On July 8, 1960, she married William Roy in Hallock. They made their home in Langdon, ND, where they raised their four children. Kathy and Bill were fortunate to be able to spend over 40 winters in Marco Island, FL, where they enjoyed the warmer weather and hosting their family when they came to visit.
Kathy was a caring and wonderful wife and mother. She lived to take care of everyone and put everyone ahead of herself. She was very humble and strong, having dealt with health issues in the past and just recently. She enjoyed reading, walking, visiting with her family and friends, playing cards, sewing, shopping, and baking. She was especially known for her “Grandma buns”. She also looked forward to going out on Tuesday evenings to the Eagles with her friends to have some pizza and play bingo. Above all, she loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Surviving Kathy are her husband, Bill, of Langdon; children: Kevin (Lori) Roy, Lori (Chalmer) Dettler, David (Stacey) Roy, and Billy Roy – all of Langdon; grandchildren: Brittany (Troy) Farris, Anthony (Mauri) Roy, Brooke (Jake) Wolff, Alexa (Nic) Lundquist, Jace (Lindsey) Roy, Nic (Kami Kay) Roy, Matthew (Reanna) Roy; and great-grandchildren: Levi, Emmitt & Ivan Roy, Samone, Kyler, Ryann & Knox Farris, Piper & Hailey Wolff, Kynlee Roy, and Brooks Roy. She was preceded in death by her parents, granddaughter Breah Roy, and seven sisters.
A memorial service will be at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, December 16, 2022, at United Lutheran Church in Langdon, ND, with visitation starting one hour before the service.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be directed to the Cavalier County Cancer Crusaders, c/o Mickey Cain, 210 8th Ave., Langdon, ND 58249.
