Henry Herbert Mohr
Went to be with his Lord on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2008 at the age of 93, after a short battle with cancer. He was born in Garden Valley, Alberta where he grew up on the family farm, worked as a carpenter, served in the army and later worked as a barber. He married Matilda Goertz July 22, 1942 and together they raised 3 children. They retired to a lakeside home in Oyama in 1972 and later moved to Vernon.
Henry’s kind, gentle nature and warm smile endeared him to all he encountered. He had a twinkle in his eye and a way of making everyone feel special. He was predeceased by 3 sisters and 1 brother and his beloved wife Tillie on March 3, 2007 and will be lovingly remembered and missed by 1 brother Leonard, his sons David (Linda), Richard (Judie) and daughter Dorothy (Wilf) McGinn, 9 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews and friends from church, Heron Grove, Sandpiper, Polson Care Center and the community.
