It is with great sadness and much love that we say goodbye to our beloved mother and grandmother Erika, who went to be with her Creator on April 15, 2019 at the age of 78 years, after a lengthy struggle with Parkinson’s. She had a great love for the Lord, her family and the people she met. She will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by her family and all who knew her.
She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Siegfried Gaida, one son Martin (Wendy) Gaida and five grandchildren, Chad Gaida, Tim (Katie) Gaida, Renee (Radek) Rybak, Jamie (Jamee) Gaida and Josh Gaida.
She was predeceased by her sister Christa (Arnold) Breitkreuz and her son, Brian (Brenda) Gaida.
As per Erika’s request, there will be no service.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Good Samaritan Southgate Care Centre who cared so much for Erika during her time there.
