We are saddened by the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Irene Irmgard Oppermann on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at St. Paul’s Hospital. Irene was born on August 6, 1924 in Jeltsch Selisia, Germany and on November 2, 1946 she married the love of her life Karl Friedrich Oppermann Sr. Both Irene and Karl emigrated to Canada in July 1978 to be closer to their son Karl Jr. and his family who at the time resided in Wakaw. Irene was an exceptional homemaker with many talents in the areas of cooking, sewing, knitting, crocheting and gardening. She was preceded in death by her husband Karl Sr. in December 1993. She is survived by her son Karl (Evelyn) and son Ralph (Birgit), granddaughters Jocelyne Petryshyn (Phil) and Michelle Oppermann, and great-granddaughters Joni, Ava and Sophie. We would like to thank the Villa Royale for providing a warm and loving atmosphere over her decade-long stay at the residence. Thank-you also to the St. Paul’s Hospital staff for facilitating her final journey in a caring and dignified manner. A Private Interment will be held at a later date. Arrangements in care of David Schurr – Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
