Waltraut BARTEL

BARTEL; Waltraut


May 28, 1920 – October 8, 2015


Waltraut died comfortably, at peace, in her sleep the evening of October 8, in the Menno Home, Abbotsford. She was predeceased by her husband, H.P. and by her much loved son Rudy. Waltraut will be missed by her large extended family both in Canada and Germany, her many friends in Agassiz, Harrison, and the Eden Church in Chilliwack. Her death will leave a void in the lives of her remaining two sons, George, Fred, wife Betty (nee Spence), Gordon, Karla, Corrine and their families, daughter in-law Brenda (nee Abrams), Ashley, Emily, Alexandria and their families. Much can be said about her life; her determination, willpower, and internal strength to overcome the many obstacles life presented her. However, the greatest memory we all take from her life is her caring, kindness, and forgiveness. A grave side service will be held at the Valley View Cemetery, Agassiz at 10:00am on Saturday, October 17 with a memorial service to follow at the Harrison Gospel Chapel at 11:00 am.
