DECEMBER 13, 1924 – MARCH 03, 2021
It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our mother Verna. Mom was predeceased by her parents Alfred and Catherine Lutze, her 3 brothers Almond, Melvin and Wilfred and her husband Fred.
Verna was born in Lucky Lake, Sask. In 1924. At the age of 9 her family moved west to B.C. when the depression and the locusts impacted their farm. They settled in Falkland B.C. and she lived there till she came to Kamloops and shortly after married her husband Fred who was also from Falkland.
She is survived by her sons Donald ( Nonie ), David ( Barbara ), her grandchildren Darrell ( Kerri ), Leanne, David ( Desiree ), Cody ( Kaitlyn ), Cathy, Nancy and numerous great grandchildren.
Our family are long time Kamloops residents. Father was a owner operator in the logging industry and mom was a stay at home mom. Upon Dad’s passing mother became interested in volunteer work at Desert Gardens community center which was located in the building where she lived for 23 years, 2 years with her husband and 21 years on her own.
She was a tireless volunteer with the center and was honored several times by them for her dedication and service and we are sure she will be greatly missed by all who knew her there.
The family would like to thank her close friends at Desert Gardens, Seiko and Penny, Margaret, Barbara and Flo for looking out for her in her last years there and will always be in your debt for being there for her.
We would also like to the staff at Ponderosa Lodge who went above and beyond caring for her in her last 2 months of life. In December of this year her health took a turn for the worse and was hospitalized and then sent to Ponderosa to recover but unfortunately that did not happen.
There will be no service for her due to covid. Thank you to Drakes Cremation for their help with Mom’s passing.Print This Obituary & Condolences
