WITTMANN, Franziska. Passed away at Fraser Canyon Hospital on May 20, 2011 at 89 years of age. Born in Hungary in 1921, her early life was marked by the vicissitudes of the politics of Europe. After a period of deportation to Russia, she managed to rejoin her husband and young daughter who by then were refugees in Germany. But it was Canada that they embraced for its stability and opportunity to resume their life as farmers. In 1980 they moved from Saskatchewan to retire in Hope, where their garden and grandchildren became their pride and joy.
Franziska was predeceased by her husband Matthias twelve years ago. She is survived by two daughters, Theresia (Andrew) and Anna (John); five grandchildren; and seven great grandchildren to honor her memory.
If you would like, donations can be made in Franziska’s memory to Fraser Canyon Hope Hospice Society (604)860-7713.
Special thanks to Dr. Greggain and the staff at FCH, also to the friends who visited her faithfully.
