Frieda Zemke March 6, 1926 - December 8, 2012 Frieda was born in Germany on March 6, 1926. She slipped away peacefully on December 8th 2012.
The Guest Book is expired.
She will be deeply missed by her husband of 60 years - Gary, daughter Kathleen (Mark), son Wilf (Nancy) and grandsons Sean and Scott. In the last few years when Frieda's health was declining, Gary was very devoted to her care.
Frieda loved to go on fishing trips, where, over the years she made many friends. Nimpo Lake in the Chilcotin was her favourite because it reminded her of her childhood home in Germany. To her delight, she always caught bigger fish than Gary.
She loved her grandchildren Scott and Sean and was always happy to hear what they were up to. She was an awesome Oma who doted on her grandsons when they were younger boys. Their mother, Nancy, feels blessed and inspired to have known her and she is deeply saddened by her death. Thank you to all who provided care for her. She also appreciated her wonderful neighbours. Her laughter, smile and good heartedness will be deeply missed. She taught us well. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
