August 14, 1922 ~ March 15, 2014
Predeceased by loving husband, Kurt, in 2000 and son, Klaus, in 1992.
We are sad to announce the passing of our beloved Mother/Omi/Oma. Edith was born in Hamburg, Germany on August 14, 1922 and moved to Tomslake, BC in 1965.
During her life in Canada, Mom loved her farm life and was always the cornerstone of the farm and her family.
In 2007, Mom moved to Dawson Creek, where she continued her interest in volunteer work in the community, especially the Red Cross. Mom was recognized as Volunteer of the Year for the Northern BC District. Receiving the award was a very proud moment for her and her family.
Mom moved to Nanaimo in 2012. In Nanaimo, she continued her volunteering by manning the Salvation Army kettle at Port Place.
Edith is survived by daughter, Marianne (Jim) Turley; daughter-in-law, Barbara (Lan) Lieurance; grandchildren: Symon, Ki, Kevin, Maureen, Stefanie, Kim, Karen and Inga; and her 9 great-grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Sands Funeral Chapel on Saturday, March 22nd at 10:00am.
