REIMER, Gisela Rosella 1938 – 2012

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Gisela Rosella Reimer. She was taken far too soon by sudden onset of Lung Cancer on December 15, 2012. Her life began on October 2, 1938 in Curitiba, Brazil, living then in Witmarsum for several years. She immigrated to Canada in 1949, eventually settling down in Abbotsford, where she met and married Peter Reimer on November 4, 1956, then settled down in Vancouver where they raised 3 children. She is survived by husband Peter, their three children, many grandchildren, several great grandchildren and extended family.

Many thanks to the Palliative Care Nurses and Doctors at the Abbotsford Tertiary Palliative Care Center. Funeral services were held earlier today at Clearbrook MB Church, Abbotsford with burial at Maclure Road Mennonite Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to MCC would be appreciated.
