Adele Schipfel was born July 16, 1925 in Sichow, Poland and passed away peacefully into the presence of the Lord on Friday, December 23, 2011 at the North Okanagan Hospice House.
She was the matriarch of the whole family and is survived by all twelve children in the Schipfel family. She will be lovingly remembered by her four siblings, her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Adele loved to entertain, cook, bake and grow a lovely flower garden. She also instilled a love of music in all her family.
Memorial donations may be made to North Okanagan Hospice House or to Heritage Square for the purchase of a new piano. She possessed a deep faith in Christ and is now re-united with her loving husband J.C. (Curt) Schipfel and others who have gone before her into heaven’s glory.
