We Remember

HENFLING, Erika Hannelore Edith

August 31, 1952 — January 22, 2021

Our beloved Erika Henfling, 68 years, of Kelowna, BC, passed away at her home on January 22, 2021. She was cared for by her loving husband by her side. Erika’s memory will be cherished by her husband, James E. Burns. She was predeceased by her parents Herman and Else Henfling. Erika’s beloved brother Helmut Henfling passed away after her, on June 5 , 2021, and is buried in the family plot in Kelowna.

Erika had a rich and full 50-year career as a Library Technician at Okanagan College and received the Distinguished Service award from the President. Erika was loved and respected by all who met her, and students were often visiting her at her desk to talk to her. Erika’s career speaks for itself. She was an exceptional person in the truest sense of the word.

There are many who will deeply mourn her passing as hers was a life of love and compassion. May she rest in peace.
