Hulda Ziemer was born at home on the family farm in Serath, Saskatchewan on August 9, 1930 and passed away at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital on March 12, 2016. She is survived by her sister Edith Trowers of Miami, Florida; sister-in-laws Ella Ziemer of Regina, Saskatchewan, and Grace Ziemer of Prince George, BC; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Hulda was predeceased by her parents Gustav and Albertine Ziemer, brothers Bernard and Ernest Ziemer, and sisters Margaret Hearle and Elizabeth Berkan. Hulda lived in Vernon for over 65 years and was an employee of Okanagan Telephone Company for 29 of those years. Hulda was a longtime devoted member of Faith Baptist Church where she played the organ, taught Sunday School, and volunteered at the Church office and with the Harwood School breakfast program. Hulda’s great love and talent was music, and she enjoyed singing with the Scott Singers and played the piano at Noric House and, up until February of this year, at Heron Grove Residential Care. She was a self-taught musician. Hulda was also an avid armchair sports fan, especially enjoying golf, and regularly watched TV game shows.
The family would like to thank the nurses, doctors, and hospital staff of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital for their recent care of Hulda.
A Service of Celebration of Hulda’s life will be held on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 3pm at the Faith Baptist Church, 3908 – 27th Street, Vernon, BC, with Pastor Len Mittelstaedt officiating.
Those wishing to do so may make a Memorial donation to Faith Baptist Church or a charity of your choice. The family gratefully declines flowers.
