It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Ewald Spies. His wife Violet (Waltraut) of 65 years, his children, Dorothy (Norman), Deborah (Stanley), Harold, Brenda (Giovanni); grandchildren Ryan, Jeff, Taran, Danielle, Sharyn (Cody) and great grandchildren Amelia, Lukas, Felix and Calder are left to mourn him, but also to remember all the joy he brought to our lives. Ewald also leaves behind sisters Emma and Wilma. As well, he will be missed by our large extended family.
Our deepest thanks extend to the healthcare teams of the CHOICE Program at the Good Samaritan Place and at the Dr. Gerald Zetter Centre, and the many caregivers along the way. A very special thanks to Dr. Catherine Otto.
A Celebration of Ewald’s life will occur at a later date. Ewald will be laid to rest at South Haven Cemetery.
Donations may be made in Ewald’s name to the CHOICE Program, the Alzheimer’s Society, or a charity of your choice.
