We Remember

HRZIC, Margret

December 26, 1946 — April 5, 2021

On April 5, 2021, Margret went to be with the Lord at the age of 74. Margret leaves behind her husband Slavko; her two sons Michael and Dominic; and her brother Manfred Hermes (Ilse). She was predeceased by brothers Rudi and Reinhold Hermes.

Margret was born in Weidenau, Germany but grew in the small German town of Kirchen an der Sieg, Germany. Margret met Slavko in a meat factory in Frankfurt, Germany where they both worked as Margret was a sales person and Slavko was a butcher. Margret and Slavko were married in Frankfurt, Germany in 1965, and they immigrated to Vancouver, BC that same year. Since she could not find work in her field, she worked as a waitress for 11 years in a few restaurants in Vancouver, but her favourite was a German restaurant on Robson St.

In 1976, the family moved to Kelowna, BC. She began working at the Fitzgerald Fruit Packing House in Rutland as well as the BC Tree Fruits Packing House. She worked for BC Tree Fruits for 35 years. Margret attended Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Rutland for many years and later attended St. Piux X Catholic Church. Margret was very strong in her Catholic faith reading the Bible every morning and praying. She attended Catholic prayer meetings regularly, and she attended Church services weekly when she was able. She filled life with simple activities that she loved such as swimming, gardening, and cooking.

Her friends, family and neighbours will dearly miss her friendly and personable spirit. Margret was a very hard worker all of her life and she was loving, caring, and kind-hearted.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

A service will be held to honour Margret with Father Gabriel presiding. Due to the current pandemic restrictions, it will be by invitation only. However, the family would like to invite all who want to pay their respects to join by Livestream on FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 2021 AT 4:00 PM (See below). A recording will be made available to view shortly thereafter.
