1937 – December 22, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother.
In 1955, Gundi immigrated from Germany to Canada and found her way to Jasper National Park and worked at the Pocahontas Restaurant.
It was there she met her future husband Dieter, who worked at Miette Hot Springs. They married in 1959 and had two daughters; Jeannette and Sheila.
Their work brought the family to Alberta, Ontario, Kimberly, B.C., Mackenzie, B.C. and then finally to 108 Mile Ranch, B.C.
Gundi and Dieter loved their home on the lake watching the beautiful sunsets and hosting many barbecues. We all enjoyed the wonderful German cuisine she prepared for her family and friends.
Gundi was a devoted and kind grandma to her 3 granddaughters. She was very happy to welcome a great grandson in 2014.
She was predeceased by her husband Dieter as well as her twin sister in 2013.
Gundi is survived by her daughters; Sheila and Jeannette, grandchildren; Lisa (Klaus), Heidi (Kam), and Julie (Kelvin) and great grandson Ace, one sister Lottie along with many nieces and nephews.
We would like to thank Dr. Howie, RN’s; Elisa, Joanne and Pam for your kind care in the E.R. We also thank the wonderful RN’s Denese, Nicole, Lori and Matt who helped make Mom’s last days more comfortable. We are thankful for the kindness shared by Ann, our Home & Community Care Nurse. We extend our gratitude to all of the staff at Carefree Manor for the outstanding care you gave to our Mom during her few months there.
To Heidi, we are grateful for all the nursing care you provided to your grandma.
Donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation in Gundi’s honour. A tea service will be held at a later date.
“A gracious and kind soul that we will deeply miss”
