Johanna Leukefeld. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Johanna Leukefeld on August 15th, 2011, in Abbotsford, BC. Born with an iron will on May 27, 1922 in Sangerhausen, Germany, Johanna rests peacefully now in the arms of her Saviour and may fulfill her dreams of reuniting with her beloved mother, whom she lost at the tender age of 11 and sadly missed her entire life. Although she touched many hearts in her full, long life, her family was her greatest pride and joy. Left to cherish Mutti’s memory are her children; Jürgen (Cheryl), Harald (Carol), Rosemary Sapizak (Gary). Also left to miss and remember Oma are her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Hannchen also leaves behind a brother and two sisters in Germany. Johanna was predeceased by her husband, Siegfried, in 1998. Special thanks to the wonderful team at the Tertiary Hospice Palliative Care Unit at ARHCC (what a blessing you are), and to so many who prayed for strength and comfort for all of us during the past couple of weeks. At her request, a family graveside service will be held, and flowers are gratefully declined in lieu of donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in Johanna’s memory.
