Montana Red Cross Mourns Loss of Volunteer

Posted: Updated:
SUPERIOR -

Montana Red Cross lost one of their own on July 15, when Kathy Duffner, a much-valued volunteer, died in a car accident on her way home from a Red Cross shelter in Superior where she and husband John had been working that day.    

Kathy Duffner started volunteering for Montana Red Cross in September 2009, when she and husband John joined the organization as members of the Sanders County Disaster Action Team. They immediately set to work, taking the required training courses and volunteering in and around their home county wherever Red Cross services were needed.

During the Montana Floods in 2011, Kathy and John spent 17 straight days delivering mass care to flood victims, including distributing over 500 clean up kits to people across the state. Kathy enjoyed working in tandem with her husband and they were an excellent and reliable team. 

In addition to volunteering for Montana Red Cross, Kathy and John were both active with YWAM and NOMADS. Kathy also worked as a nurse in Great Falls and Plains, was a manager of New Horizons assisted living center in Plains and an assistant manager of The Waterford in Helena.

Kathy embraced the lifestyle of care giving and dedicated her life to serving and helping others. She will be greatly missed by all her who knew her, including her Red Cross family.
