Margarete and Herbert Zitzelsberger

Hey Theo, you have always been my hero. I‘ll always remember the lovely times we had together on our trips to Berlin, Paris, Dresden and Barcelona and the Daily phone conversations we had for the last 3 1/2 years. I‘ll miss you and I thank you for the inspirations you gave to me. I‘m pleased that I can say farewell to you here in Edmonton.
Rest In Peace. You‘ll always be in my heart..
Love Herbert
And as your long life sister in law – were are married for 50 years now – we often spend time together in Germany and Canada. And of course with Herbertˋ s phone calls every night I was always involved in some ways . We are very glad we could talk to you and see you at least some times via face time so we knew about you quiet well.
Unfortunately our plan, to visit you after lifting of the Covid Restrictions and accompany you to the new nursing home didn‘t work out. But we are here now in Edmonton, your chosen place to be and glad for the family/friend reunion to remember you.
Rest In Peace.
Love Margarete

Remembering Uncle Theo brings back childhood memories of huge shopping malls, marmots and of course bowling alleys. But then there are the few not so old memories, meeting you and dad at Lake Constance or speaking with you for a few minutes on the phone on one of dads daily calls… I loved the way you used those old German words from your childhood I always had to figure out their meaning. And I am glad that even my kids do remember you as the tall man who ones fell in the bushes and it took three adults to get him back on his feet… you have a place in our hearts.


Remembering Ted with fondness. Ted was a close family friend for many years. Ben met Ted at the bowling alley and shared a passion for bowling. He spent many special holidays, Christmas, Thanksgiving and many family barbecues with us. He was always an upbeat and cheerful fellow. We have many memories and will not be forgotten.


May you rest in peace, big brother. Although we have not seen much of each other, I live in Australia, in the intervening years I will always cherish the few months we spent together at your place in Edmonton in the early sixties. In ever loving memory, your brother Robert.
