We Remember


November 25, 1924 — March 27, 2021

It is with great sadness that the family of Alma Bruenig announce that she passed away comfortably on March 27, 2021, at 96 years of age.

Alma was born in Kolowert, Poland on November 25, 1924 and was married in 1949 to Kurt Bruenig. In 1980, she immigrated to Kelowna, BC where she made a career for herself in hotel management.

Life wasn’t always easy for Alma, but despite her difficult upbringing, her kindness and generosity always shone through. Her family deeply admired her courage of spirit and positive attitude, and will remember Alma’s old adage, “It can always be worse”

Alma is survived by her daughters Nettie Bruenig and Lonie Kendall (Ken); daughters-in-law Edith and Janet; grandchildren Rachel, Megan (Brandon), Jonathan, Tim, Shari, Tanya, and Tammy; great-grandchildren Kadence, Ashlin, Travis, and Jenna.

Alma was predeceased by her spouse Kurt, and her sons Fred and Lothar.

A Private Graveside Service will be held to honour Alma at Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery April 1, 2021 with Pastor Harvey Elke officiating; however due to the current pandemic restrictions it will be by invitation only.

As an expression of sympathy, flowers may be sent to family through Springfield Funeral Home at 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna BC, V1Y 5V8.
