Christa Anna Fiedler Obituary
Christa Fiedler, a 60 year resident of Riverside, CA, died on June 24, 2017 at the age of 90.
Christa was dearly loved by her daughter, Trish Banda and son, Jeff Fiedler and her many former students and bridge playing friends in the Riverside area. She was married to Robert "Bob" Fiedler for 53 years who preceded her in death.
Christa grew up in East Germany and married Bob in 1950. They fled the communist zone for West Germany leaving everything behind. Christa always had a strong affinity for Americans and was convinced by her husband that they should relocate to the U.S. in the early 1950's. They initially moved to Chicago where Bob's uncle and aunt sponsored their visas.
In 1953 Bob was hired as a mechanical engineer at Bourns, Inc. which brought them to Riverside. Christa's love of teaching, especially English to non-native speakers, kept her busy for the next 50 years. She loved each and every one of her students, many of whom had immigrated to the U.S. from various countries around the world as she had. Christa finally retired at 70.
Christa was an avid duplicate and party bridge player. Christa would often say that if it wasn't for bridge, she didn't know what she would do with herself.
The family asks that Christa be remembered for her profound love of family, students and friends. She will be sorely missed and her zest for life was an inspiration to all.
A Memorial Service will be held on August 5, 2017 at 11:00 AM at Acheson & Graham Garden of Prayer Mortuary, 7944 Magnolia Avenue, Riverside, CA 92504 (951) 267-9039.
