Fritz Siegenthaler


With deep sorrow, we announce the passing

away of Fritz Siegenthaler at the age of 94 years.

He died peacefully in the Vernon Hospice on

November 30, 2008. Fritz was predeceased by

his wife of 56 years, Frieda, in 1999, and eight

brothers and sisters.

He is survived by son Peter (Judy); daughters

Verena and Ruth; grandchildren Amy (Bob),

Mark, Emily and Lois; two sisters, a brother, two

sisters-in-law and many nieces and nephews

in Switzerland. We thank the individual nurses

and aides of community care and the staff at

Gentle Waters who cared for our father. Our

very special thanks to the wonderful staff and

volunteers at the Vernon Hospice who made his

last days enjoyable and comfortable. We also

appreciate Louise Franssen’s gift of friendship,

laughter and assistance. Our heartfelt thanks

go to Don Gallacher, whose loving and faithful

friendship so greatly enriched our father’s last

years. At Fritz’s request, there will be a private

graveside service at a later date. Cremation

arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral

Home 250-542-0155.
