We Remember

KLUMPNER, Irma (Menu) nee Dornez

On May 8, 2015 Irma Klumpner formerly Irma Menu passed away peacefully at KGH.

Irma was a long-time Okanagan Valley resident, having moved from St. Boniface, Manitoba to Summerland, BC in 1946 with her husband Felix Menu.

In 1951 Irma and Felix were one of the founding families to settle in the VLA subdivision in Lakeview Heights.  It was here that they raised their six children Helen, Lorraine, Gerald, Fred, Henry and Cecile.

With the passing of Felix in 1981, Irma left Lakeview Heights living for a short time in the Vernon, Coldstream area and ultimately settling in Kelowna.

In 1987 Irma married Hans (John) Klumpner of Peachland. BC.  Her retirement years were spent happily with her husband Hans travelling extensively and spending their winters in southern sunshine until he passed away in 2004.

A few years later Irma moved into Hawthorn Park where she lived for nine years and developed some wonderful friendships.

In the fall of 2014 Irma transferred to Lake Country Lodge in Winfield where the staff provided a warm and caring environment.  Irma leaves behind a fine legacy of six children, six grandchildren, and eight great grandchildren.
