Oma Alberta Ainsworth
16 September 1915 – 20 December 2011
The family of Oma said their final farewell to “Mom” after a long and healthy 96 years of life.
Mom was the youngest of 11 children. She met our father, Charlie, and married at 21, raised 9 children, and owned and operated several restaurants (Top Hat, White Spot) in Calgary. Mom also worked as head of the kitchen at Sarcee Auxiliary Hospital in Calgary. They moved to B.C. when they retired, living in Lumby, Victoria and Salmon Arm. Mom’s final 10 years were spent in Lumby.
Oma leaves behind her children George-ann (Hank), Donald (Shirley), Douglas, Clifford (Adele), Judith (Robert), Janice (Collin), Sherry (Fred), Charles Jr. (Donna) and Oma-Jean Theresa (Dan); 24 grandchildren and 36 great-grandchildren. Mom was a true angel who touched the hearts of everyone she met. Her memory will be cherished forever. A Celebration of Life will be held in the spring of 2012.
