We Remember

Reszitnyk, Walda (Angoldt)

We are sad to announce Walda’s sudden passing on April 15, 2012 but intend to celebrate her life in the spirit with which she lived and loved.


Walda is predeceased by her husband Alex in 2008.  Together they lived a life where they talked, laughed, danced, cried, raised children, paid mortgages, traveled, enjoyed grandchildren, lived and loved through the messiness and wonder of life.


Walda leaves behind Donna Condon (Jim), Wayne (Karen), Randy, Colin (Pam) and her special Shannon; grandchildren: Tara, Tanna, Trevin, Gracie, Jenna and Tyler Alexander; three inherited grandchildren: Jim, Hunter and Madison.  Also survived by her mother Greta Angoldt; three sisters: Helga Ross (Gordon), Rita Beach (Brian) and Edna Kopeck; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.


Please join us for an open Memorial on Thursday, April 26, 2012 at 7:00 pm, followed by a Funeral Service on Friday, April 27, 2012 at 10:00 am, both at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.


In lieu of flowers and to honour Walda’s 34 years of service to the Lung Association in the Kelowna area, we would ask for donations to be made to the BC Lung Association, PO Box 34009, Postal Station D, Vancouver, BC, V6J 4M2.

    Sorry to hear of Walda’s passing. She was a good neighbour and we will miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  • Ruth Anderson says:

    We are saddened by Walda’s sudden passing on and our heart goes out to all of you, no one can ever replace a Mother or Grandmother. This poem (don’t know the author) comforted me when my mom passed on:
    “Not gone but only gone before
    To where love lives on evermore.
    Not lost but only lost from sight
    As one, who walks ahead at night.
    Not parted…only just apart
    In memory, kept close at heart.
    Not of the past… but now to be
    A part of all eternity.”

    For everything there is a fixed time ….. under the sun. A time for birth and a time for death; a time for planting and a time for uprooting; A time for weeping and a time for laughing; a time for sorrow and a time for dancing; Eccl.3:1,2,4

    You are all in our prayers. Walda’s enthusiasm and cheerful spirit will surely be missed! Lots of love
    Ruth & Ed

  • Lynne Crassweller says:

    My sincerest condolences to all the family. She will be SO missed by family and many friends. I will miss our occasional long phone chats and visits. She doted on her grandchildren and talked about them all the time. She was just a dear lady and I feel privileged to have had her for a friend for more than the last 20 years, sharing camping, Merritt, crafts, etc. Very hard to believe she is no longer with us.

  • Frank & Lynn Popien says:

    Alex and Walda adopted me as a fourth son when I moved to Kelowna from Manitoba in 1980. I was homesick and Alex and Walda took me into their home and made me part of their family for the year I stayed in their suite. Alex offered me much advise through the years and Walda was always worried when I didnt make it home on time and I truly appreciated their thoughts for me. I was truly honoured to be part of Alex’s celebration of life in 2008 and although life had made us grow apart I will truly miss my second mom. Rest in peace Walda. I will truly miss your big smile
