We Remember


August 23, 1933 — May 25, 2022

Herta passed away unexpectedly on May 25, 2022, at the age of 88. Herta is survived by her daughters, Wendy and Gail; her sons-in-law, Gary and Blake; her brother Dave and sister-in-law Marg; her brother Arnold and sister-in-law Doreen; and all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Einhart; her daughter, Valerie; her son-in-law, Barry; her sister, Wilma; and brother-in-law, George.

Herta was born in Leipe, Poland in 1933 and moved, as a young girl, to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, where she met and married her husband, Einhart. The two settled in Kelowna, British Columbia in 1992.

Before her move to BC, Herta worked as a seamstress for many years and took great pride in the fact that none of her work was ever returned to the store. She was meticulous when it came to sewing and keeping a tidy house, and she was an amazing cook and hostess. She also had a passion for gardening, and grew both flowers and fresh vegetables. Herta loved to travel and had an inspirational zest for life. She cared so much about the friends and family in her life, and she will be dearly missed.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out in this difficult time.
