December 16, 1919 – December 12, 2012
Kathe, our loving mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully on the evening of Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at the wonderful age of 92 years while being cared for at the Carewest Sarcee Hospice. She had just finished a visit from grandchildren from three of the families that were Oma's greatest joy, and which are now her strongest legacy.
Kathe is survived by her children and their spouses, Fred and Beverly Winkel of Red Deer, Elizabeth and Brian Lade of Calgary, and by stepdaughter Edith Penno of Edmonton. Her legacy includes her seven grandchildren, Rita Penno, Fred Winkel, Katrina Bedwell, Jarred Winkel, Jordan Winkel, Krista Lade and Jessica Lade along with seven great-grandchildren. Her open and cheerful personality, and her caring nature, allowed Kathe to make friends in many locations. She will be deeply missed by all of us, family and friends alike, including the members of the church congregations that were a focus of her life. We wish to express our deepest appreciation for the skills and devotion and the new friendships offered to Kathe in recent weeks during her illness by the doctors and nursing staffs at Calgary's Rockyview Hospital and at the Hospice.
A Memorial service will be held in Red Deer on Wednesday, December 19 at 1:00 p.m. in the Deer Park Alliance Church. In lieu of Flowers, donations may be made in Kathe's memory to Global Advance Fund directed through Deer Park Alliance Church, 2960 - 39 Street, Red Deer, Alberta T4R 2G2.
