In memory of
Katrina Robertson Reed
Katrina was born Katrina Virginia Robertson on March 12, 1944 in Birmingham, AL to Wilton and Wamo (Reed) Robertson. Katrina grew up in the Catholic church and was baptized at Holy Family Church in Birmingham. She was a Girl Scout and grew up surrounded by cousins and close friends in Pratt City Katrina attended A. H. Parker H.S. in Birmingham, AL from 1958-1961. There she sang in the Parker High School choir. Her friendships from this time would be life-long. In 1961, Katrina married Frederick M. Green and from that union came a son, Frederick Dewayne, and a few years later a daughter, Katrina Annjanette. The young couple left Birmingham and to everyone's surprise made the long journey to St. Paul, Minnesota. Following in her mother's footsteps, Katrina received her B.S. in Elementary Education in 1968 and began her teaching career in the St. Paul Public Schools. Katrina pledged the Delta Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA) in 1974, and was inducted into the Minneapolis-St. Paul Chapter of the Links. With the help of a few fur coats, she adjusted well to the Minnesota winters and made the Twin Cities her home for 30+ years. In 1983, Katrina received a Master's degree in Educational Administration from the University of Minnesota. Her career in public education spanned 33 years and multiple cities. Upon her retirement in 2001, Katrina moved to Atlanta, Georgia and continued to work as a consultant for urban school districts across the country. She was passionate about community, friendships, and family. Katrina was preceded in death by her father, Wilton, and her mother, Wamo. She is survived by her two children, Frederick and Katrina (Okeeba), her grandchildren, Damond (Tenisha), Kimerie, Marcellus, Sydney, Marcus, Sol, Noble, and her great-grandchildren, Amir and Aniyah. A memorial service will be held via livestream on Friday, February 19th, 2021 at the Murray Brothers Funeral Home, Cascade Chapel, at 3 o'clock p.m. Livestream at the time of memorial https://vimeo.com/murraybrothers In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Scholarship Fund at the Carole Robertson Center for Learning ( CRCL.net ).
