Kortni Anne Botzet, 6, Carlos, died Sunday, May 2, 2010.
Kortni was born October 9, 2003 in Alexandria, the daughter of James and Nicole (Ness) Botzet. She was in kindergarten at Carlos school.
Even though Kortni’s life was short, there are many memories that her family will cherish. Her love of dancing and singing stand out most in her parents’ minds. They remember this Christmas giving the kids a Mini Z and Kortni was outside riding on it singing her little heart out. She would also tell people that she was not a colorer – “I’m an artist.” She enjoyed singing and playing the bells at Sunday school.
Kortni also loved to help her parents take care of her younger brothers. Like many older siblings she was good at being the boss. She looked forward to her monthly “girls’ day out,” where she and her mom would go and do something special. Kortni also enjoyed the time that her and dad would take together – whether it would be driving the tractor or skid loader at the farm, feeding the cows, or when he took her to buy her princess boots.
She is survived by her parents, James and Nicole of Carlos; two brothers, Daryn and Evyn; grandparents, Gary and Diane Botzet of Carlos, Bill and Terry Ness of Brandon; great-grandparents, Norma and Corky Scherrer of Brandon, Joan Ness of Elbow Lake, Shirley Botzet of Carlos, Ray and Loyola Frie of Osakis; aunts and uncles, Michelle and Nate Irmen of Minot, ND, Kayla Ness and fiance’ Mark Witte of Otsego, Leslie and Ashley Ness of Evansville, Mark Botzet of Carlos; cousins, Jasmine and Kobe Irmen and Avery Ness.
She was preceded in death by her great-grandpas, Tony Botzet, Raymond Strom, Martin Ness; great-uncle, Kevin Botzet; and great-aunt, Susan Ness.
Mass of Christian Burial was held Friday, May 7 at St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Belle River.
Pallbearers were Justin Steidl, Mike Hollerman, Rydell Robinson, Jason Taveirne, Randy Hartung and Bill Nicholas. Burial was at St. Nicholas Catholic Cemetery.
