HLADIK, Wilma (nee Snyders)
“Like all journeys, she did not end, she just simply changed directions and kept going” r.m.drake.
It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our mom, grandma and sister, Francina (Wilma) Hladik on January 30, 2018. Mom has gone to continue her journey with her husband of 52 years Gary who passed away January 15, 2018.
Left with many special memories are her children and grandchildren; daughters Karen (Ernie) Hermann of Leduc and Jo Ann (Randy) Partaker of Okotoks; grandchildren Geoff & Kyra Hermann and Ryan & Ethan Partaker. Wilma is also survived by her brothers, Gerrit (Eleanor), Renus (Linda), Dick (Shirley) and John (Lois) Snyders, sister Mary Grekul and sister in law Colleen (Reg) Lachman.
Mom was a small child when she came to Canada from Holland and her strong sense of family and community was instilled by her parents Johanna and Dirk. She maintained many friendships from her working years at the Leduc Hospital and continued to enjoy exploring and making new friends with dad as they travelled in their home away from home while in retirement.
A celebration of life will be held in Spring 2018 to honor both Wilma and Gary.
