We Remember

Wickenheiser, Emily Anne

January 1, 1970 — January 1, 1970


Went to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 5, 2012 at the age of 26. Survived by her loving parents Robert and Lenora Wickenheiser, grandparents Elsie Wickenheiser, Joe Belanger, Myrna White; aunts and uncles: George Wickenheiser, Jacquey Cumming, John Wickenheiser, Donna, Ed (Patti) Wickenheiser, Doug (Donna) Wickenheiser, Sharon Fuez, Arthur (Angel) Wickenheiser, Cindy (Marc) Gruber, Diane Wickenheiser (Darryl Unger), Kelly Belanger, Cali Linley, Nolan (Pat) Belanger and myriads of cousin. Predeceased by grandfather Peter Wickenheiser and her uncle Peter Wickenheiser. Emily was born on Good Friday, March 28, 1986 in Kelowna, where she lived out her life. She faced a great many challenges which she endured with tenacity. Emily was happiest when surrounded by her favourite toys, including: balloons, plastic hangers and small brightly coloured toys. She greatly enjoyed new clothes, shoes and beaded necklaces like any real girly –girl. This little angel seemed to bring happiness to everyone who knew her and somehow managed to wrap every last one of us around her fingers! We all have this in common: we loved her like crazy, we shared her, we enjoyed her company and her endearing ways, and we will all miss her immeasurably. Emily, you’re our hero. We love you so much. A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, May 11, 2012 at 11:00 am at Kelowna Christian Center, 905 Badke Road with Pastor David Kalamen officiating. Should family and friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, 4480 Oak Street, Room B321, Vancouver, BC V6H 3V4.

    Dear Rob,Lenora and Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Emily’s passing. Her obituary is beautifully written and really captured the essence of your special girl. I remember, with fondness and a smile, Emily’s love of jewellry and how she had to closely examine every piece of jewellry I had on (including my earrings!) every time I came to see her. She truly touched everyone who knew her and she will be missed. Rest in Peace, dear Emily.
