On May 4th, after 35 years apart, Erika left us to rejoin her husband, Ernie. In 1951, at the age of 24, Erika left her home in Frankfurt, Germany, to travel to Canada. She found herself in Port Alberni, where she met and married Ernie. Erika loved her family, cheesecake, shopping, Leonard Cohen, travelling and chocolate, although not always in that order. She is survived by sons Ron (Wendy) of Okotoks, and Bob (Brenda) of Port Alberni. She was Oma to Jason, Susan, Robyn and Stella, and a great grandmother to nine. Mom always told us “Growing old is not for sissies,” and she proved to us, many times, that she was definitely not a sissy.
At Erika’s request, there will be no service.
