March 30, 1967 — September 25, 2021

KATHERINE “KATIE” MARIE BULAND, age 54, of Waseca, died on Saturday, September 25, 2021, at her home.

Born on March 30, 1967, in Minneapolis. At a young age, Katie was adopted by the Richard and Barbara (Lueken) Sankovitz family. She grew up in Waseca, attending Sacred Heart Catholic School and later graduated from Waseca Public School, where she excelled at Band and Track. Katie continued her education at St. Theresa in Winona and Minneapolis Business College. On November 16, 1996, Katie was united in marriage to Glenn Buland at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Waseca. Katie worked at First National Bank for many years as a teller until her children were born. She enjoyed Stampin’ UP!, crafts, camping and watching movies. She was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Waseca and was active with the Waseca Band Boosters and as a Girl Scout Leader for many years.
