We Remember

WINKEL, Maria Margarete

Went to be with her Lord peacefully in her sleep on March 29, 2013 at the age of 86 after a long illness. She leaves behind her husband Heinz of 53 years and many friends who remember her as a kind and compassionate person who had a great heart for all people she met. She came to Canada with her husband in 1975 where they managed the Brookside Residence with love and patience for the residents for many years. Margaret will be greatly missed by all who knew her. We would like to thank Dr. Steinruck, the staff and nurses at Kelowna General Hospital and Hospice House for their compassionate care given to Margarete. A funeral service will be held on April 4, 2013 at 3:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Chain of Love Homes, Brazil or B.C. Teen Challenge.
