Katherine (Pajerski) Bombalski, 106, of Natrona Heights, passed away on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 with her family at her side at Platinum Ridge Nursing Home in Brackenridge where she stayed only a few days after a fall at home that broke her hip. She was born November 24, 1912, in Daisytown to the late Ludwik (Lewis) and Agnes (Kubicz) Pajerski. Katherine was a member of Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament R.C. Parish, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Natrona Heights. Katherine lived a long full life of love for her family. When family said "I love you," Katherine always responded, "I love you more." A skilled seamstress, she spent countless hours sewing for the family. And when together with family, Katherine generously gave slippers or an afghan she crocheted, Polish baked goods she prepared, tomatoes she canned, or a rose from her garden. Katherine loved to play cards with friends and family, read, travel, and watch the Steelers. Proud of her Polish heritage, Katherine enjoyed two trips to Poland and joyously sang "Sto Lat" on birthdays and other Polish hymns at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church where she regularly attended.
