We Remember


Frieda Herrmann passed away peacefully January 31, 2016 in Kelowna at the age of 87 years. Frieda was born on December 24, 1928 in Klein Gluska, Poland and immigrated to Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1952.  She is survived by her loving husband Heinz, with whom she enjoyed 67 years of marriage. Frieda was the much loved mother of Christa (Lloyd) Kjellbotn, Gordon (Gwen) Herrmann, and Gerry who predeceased her in 2004. She was a loving Oma to Kari, Kim (Ian), Tina and Amanda (Mike) and leaves behind four great grandchildren – Ashley, Julia, Jordan and Aeris. Frieda is also survived by two sisters, Ella and Gertrude (Dave) in Calgary and three brothers, Alfred (Hilde) in Kelowna, Erwin (Shirley) in Red Deer and Edmund (Joan) in Arizona, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.


Frieda was a kind, loving and generous woman who was happiest when surrounded by family and friends, preparing delicious meals to share.  She enjoyed playing cards and never lost her sense of humour.  Frieda will be dearly missed and in our hearts forever.
