We are very sad to announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital on February 13, 2015, at the age of 87. Auguste was born in Vienna, Austria, the oldest of 7 children, and emigrated to Kitimat, BC in 1956 with her husband and two young daughters. A third daughter was born in Kitimat. In 1958 the family moved to Queensborough, New Westminster where the girls grew up and the family made longlasting friendships. Auguste was an excellent homemaker and loved sewing, knitting, handicrafts and gardening. She was a devoted wife and mother and loved her traditions and routines. Auguste and husband Frank moved to Nanaimo in 1989 upon Frank’s retirement and spent many happy, productive years in their little house on Barrington Road.
Auguste is predeceased by her husband Frank and daughter Erika. She is survived by daughters Renee, Susanne, granddaughter Lisa, grandson Ryan, (Jackie) and great granddaughters Raegan, Audrey and Emma. as well as her 6 siblings, all in Canada.
Our deepest thanks and gratitude are owed to Doctors Cancade, Carr and Wallach for their unwavering care and dedication to Auguste, especially during the last two years as her health was declining.
There will be no service as per Auguste’s request. May she rest in everlasting peace.
