Left to cherish her memory is her husband of 67 years, Gert, her daughters Edie and Sigrid (Rick), grandchildren Chris (Tracy), Kim (Karl), Angie (Mason) and great grandchildren Jackson, Hayden, Emily, Lauren, and Adrianna.
Erna was born on March 6, 1929 in Karlshofen, Germany. On May 8, 1948, she met the love of her life, Gert. On January 5, 1951, they married. They immigrated to Canada with their two children in 1956.
Erna and Gert loved to spend time in Pointe Du Bois, Manitoba. After retirement, they built their home there. They enjoyed the outdoors and spent a lot of time fishing and picking blueberries in the summer and snowmobiling and skiing in the winter.
Erna was a great cook and baker, always with a fresh tin of homemade cookies for the kids. We will all miss her black forest torte.
Erna loved spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
We will miss her beautiful blue eyes and the smile she always had for everyone.
The family would like to thank all the staff at the Lac Du Bonnet Personal Care home for their excellent care.
A private service will be held at Friends Funeral Service.
