We Remember

ALTENBURG, Ida Katrina

March 12, 1940 — May 7, 2017

In loving memory of Ida Altenburg of Kelowna, who passed away peacefully with family by her side on Sunday May 7th, 2017 at the age of 77.  She was born in the Netherlands but settled in Canada after marrying the love of her life. Both kind and gentle, she had a zest for life and a beautiful and adventurous spirit.  She was a wonderful seamstress, a lover of nature, travel and had a passion for sport.  Most importantly, she gave her family and friends the best things in life: love and care – for those, we are most grateful.

She is missed immensely and will always be in our hearts.

She is survived by her daughter Leona (Jeremy), grandson Jacob, brothers Rients, Henk (Isabella), Ane (Eleonora), and sisters Lena (Peter), Jetty (Auke), Julia (Hans), Tineke (Hans), Marijke (Wim) as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extensive family in the Netherlands.  Predeceased by her loving husband Jack, sister-in-law Mieke, her father Andries Huitema and mother Lisabeth Anema.

A special thank you to Ida’s sister Tineke, sister-in-law Ann, niece Sarah, brother-in-laws Ted and Hans and friends Pauline Bark and Rika Bosma for their immense support and love during this difficult time. We are forever grateful.

A memorial mass will be held Monday May 15th at 11:00 AM at St. Charles Garnier Catholic Church 3645 Benvoulin Rd, Kelowna, BC V1W 4M7.
