We regret to announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Erna Helena Reinhardt.

Mom was born in Brokenhead, Manitoba and was baptized, confirmed and married at the Lutheran Church in Thalberg, Manitoba. After her marriage to Fred Reinhardt on January 14th, 1951, Mom, with Dad, moved to Chilliwack, B.C., then to Lumby in 1961, and on to Vernon in 1968. After Dad’s death in 1993, Mom moved to Maple Grove Manor, and then to Orchard Valley. Because of declining health, Mom was admitted to Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Polson Multi Care became her home in her final days.

She is survived by her children, Janice (Joe) Mezynski, Clifford (Lorraine) Reinhardt, Karen (Tim) Lee and Annette (Greg) Harvey; her grandchildren, Michael, Dan (Tera), Heather (Joe), Karla (Kevin), Peter (Katherine), Rollen (Jenny), Logan (Deborah), Ehren, Heidi (Gord), Katy and Anna; and her great-grandchildren, Markus, Luke, Elora, Sebastian, James, Jordyn and Grayson; sisters-in-law, Minnie Bauschke, Irma Arlt, Margaret Reinhardt; brother-in-law, Herman Bloch; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
