While in Germany Mom worked as a bookkeeper for the family business and a Red Cross nurse after Otto’s passing. In 1959, we immigrated to Sudbury, ON. Our adventure continued in 1962 when we moved to Radisson, SK, Dad returning to the land that he loved. Mom loved her gardening, baking and spiritual activities throughout her life. She never complained but always saw the brighter side of life. In 1977 Mom and Dad moved to Radisson to retire. Mom lived in Radisson until 2010, when due to health issues she came to live in Winnipeg, at the Meadowood Manor Seniors Independent Living complex and in 2015 she moved into the Meadowood Manor PCH. While there she continued with her spiritual life and enjoyed many of the daily activities. During her life Mom visited Inge & John and she was known and loved as Oma to her grandchildren Marian and Adam. She also travelled to MB & NWT to visit us and to AB, BC, ON, North Dakota, Florida and may trips to Germany and her sister Tante Hermine, affectionately know as Mimi, Hermine visited Mom in Canada on many occasions.
We would like to thank the staff of Meadowood Manor PCH for their loving care throughout her stay.

Gone From Us …. Author Unknown
Gone from us that smiling face,
The cheerful pleasant ways,
The heart that won so many friends,
In bygone, happy days.
A life made beautiful by kindly deeds,
A helping hand for other’s needs,
To a beautiful life,
Comes a happy end,
She died as she lived’
