Tribute wall - a place to share your memories and condolences

Oma, I will miss you terribly. You were a loving, kind, generous woman. Despite having a large family you managed to make each of us feel special. Your love never seemed to have a limit, and you made Tim feel like one of your grandchildren too. Your selflessness and acceptance of others are an example I hope to carry forward. Love you Oma.

Though we never went hungry, our family’s finances were very tight. Mom was determined her children would not look poor in shabby clothes. I have many memories around the craft of sewing she passed to me. Mom started teaching me how to sew as a very young girl. Every year we went to the stadium for the rummage sale. We would look for big dresses with lots of pretty fabric. I helped mom take them apart and together we planned the new dress my sister and I had every Christmas and Easter. By the time I got to high school I was making all my own clothes. This skill helped build my self confidence during a very insecure time. I always asked mom to add her tailored hand sewn buttonholes. She often worked late into the night so that I could wear my new outfit the next day to school.
It was while working together on sewing projects that we would have many conversations. When I would express doubts about my future she had a way of framing things to inspire me with hope. Ultimately her hope was firmly rooted in the Lord. It is because of your living example I can claim the hope of seeing you again.

Mom H, you welcomed me as a daughter from the day I married into the family. You exemplified the fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness and self control) in your daily walk as a humble servant of Christ. Through adversity you never chose bitterness or anger, rather choosing courage, faith, hope and positivity.

You leave such a rich legacy for me to emulate. Thank you for being such an influential person in my life.

I cannot conceive the jubilation you feel rejoicing in heaven. I shall miss you greatly! With much love…until we meet again ❤️

As a child, I remember visits to Oma’s house involving games of reversi or rummy tiles or uno, pastries from the German store, and her translating the Struwwelpeter stories to us in a slightly different way every time. In more recent years, I fondly remember looking through her photo albums and asking her questions while she would offer me one chocolate covered cookie after another. I will think of her whenever I eat a frosty or see red geraniums.

I am so thankful to have had an Oma with such a beautiful soul. She loved abundantly and had the most wonderful laugh. They way she lived out her steadfast faith in Jesus is an example that I will reflect on for life. I cannot imagine the joy she now has in heaven.

Ed Stuerle

Mom H was one the kindest and accepting souls I’ve ever met. She always made me feel at ease and left me with the impression that I was the most important person in the room. What an example to try to follow.

Kristina Boechler

Like all of her grandchildren, I have so many fond memories of my dear Oma. She always welcomed us with a big smile and warm hug whenever we came to visit. I will miss our conversations, shopping trips, building puzzles, colouring and gardening together. When we left after our visits she would sneak “Oma candies” into our pockets and would stand at the edge of her step waving with both hands. She was such a wonderful, warm and kind soul that will be dearly missed by us all.

I will think of you when I bake torte and when I plant red geraniums. I will think of you whenever I wear polkadots, see little lady bugs and travel to new places. This past year has been so difficult having to be apart. I am so thankful that I could get one last visit to see you smile, hold your hand and tell you what was on my heart. I will think of you when I need strength, because I don’t know anyone that is stronger. I wish that our time together could have been just a little bit longer. One thing that I’m sure will always remind me too… Whenever I laugh Oma, I will always think of you. ❤️

Janessa Stuerle (Cam’s wife)

I heard so many wonderful stories about Oma. Although I only met her once on her 90th birthday, it was evident that she lived a life full of love and compassion for her family. She will be dearly missed.

Stephanie Steurle

Oma, you will be dearly missed. I have been so blessed to be welcomed into your family with open arms. The legacy you leave is a beautiful one, as the way you’ve raised your family to be so loving and generous has such an impact on those around them. Your unwavering faith throughout your life and all that it has brought, is an example to us all!

Cameron Stuerle

I loves my dear Oma. She had such a great joy for life and was the kindest soul I knew. I loves playing games with her as a young child. She had no reason to be interested in toy trains and cars but she would get down on the floor and play with me all the same. She loved me and all her grandchildren so much. I miss you Oma, and I can’t wait to see you again.

Kevin Stuerle

My Oma was the kindest, gentlest soul. I don’t remember a time when she wasn’t just happy to with us. Looking back at all of these great pictures of family gatherings over the years, the one thing that remained constant was Oma’s smile in every one. I will miss that smile.

Love you Oma.

Erin Kuebler

Oma was warm and welcoming. When I was school aged we would go visit with her every Thursday afternoon when we were out of school early.  Oma always had a warm welcome, our favorite snacks and an ear to listen to our day or time to go through old family albums with us. Over the years we learned a lot about Oma. She would take a piece of cake over a piece of meat anyday.  She hated cooking even if she had to do it daily to feed six children.  She learned English from I Love Lucy. She emigrated to Canada on a ship,  with two little boys and pregnant with another child. She would say that life wasn’t easy raising six kids, but I don’t think I ever heard her complain. Oma took life with optimism and grace. I hope one day I have even half her strength, positivity and patience.  The world is less because Oma left it, but it is so so much more because she was in it. I love you Oma.

Steven Hasenbank
