Obituary of Katrina Breitenbach
Katrina Yvonne Breitenbach, age 44, went to be with the Lord on September 6, 2018 at Life Care Center in Banner Elk, NC.
Katrina was born in Charlotte, NC on May 13, 1974 to Fred and Angeline Breitenbach. The family moved to Asheboro, NC in 1989 where Katrina graduated from Asheboro High School. She went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in Music from High Point University. She was voted "Best Writing Student" by the faculty. She earned a Master of Arts in Strategic Communication from Regent University.
Katrina's passions were horses and acting. Katrina learned to ride a horse at a young age and continued to ride well into her battle with MS. She was thankful to find a stable that offered therapeutic horseback riding which enabled her to enjoy her passion for a long time. Katrina discovered acting while she was in high school and spent several years developing her craft in the Asheboro, Greensboro, and High Point area. Katrina's special loves were her dogs. Erin and Penny were her two oldest companions. It was her tradition for several years to take a long hike on her birthday with Erin.
Katrina is survived by her father; brother Ralph Seamon and his wife Robyn of Valle Crucis, NC; sisters Nina Huddleston and her husband Dan of Mountain Home, AR, and Laura Lanter of Mount Pleasant, NC; nephews and nieces Jessica Montoya, Emily Batten, Sarah Campbell, Daniel Huddleston, Rachel Gatewood, Jesse Lanter, and Logan Lanter; and nine great nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother, niece Stephanie Seamon, and nephew Jacob Lanter.
