Nettie Katherine Wolpert

Nettie Katherine Wolpert passed away peacefully on August 15, 2014 in Vernon, British Columbia. She was born June 10, 1923 in Birch River, Manitoba to Arthur and Katherine Brauner. Nettie had four sisters and eight brothers. In her younger years she worked at The Pas and Flin Flon, Manitoba. October 19, 1943 Nettie married Wally Wolpert and in 2013 they celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. A few years after marriage they moved to Creighton, Saskatchewan where Nettie was involved in the auxiliary at the community hall and worked as caretaker as well. She also worked at the hospital in Flin Flon, Manitoba. She enjoyed many things over the years, horseback riding, curling and being a homemaker but more than anything Nettie loved spending time with her family. In 1985, for retirement, Nettie and Wally moved to Vernon, which she referred to as God’s country. She will now be reunited with her husband, Wally, who passed in May 2014. Nettie will be forever loved and missed by her children: Myrna (Dennis) Glowa and their sons Ray, Kevin and Michael (Kim); son Herman Wolpert and his daughters Denise (Lyndon) and Sandy (Brent); and daughter Penny and her sons Cody, Ryan and Dallas and eleven great-grandchildren. Further cherishing her memory are her sisters: Sophie Johnson and Ethel Harpe and brothers: Harold and Frank (Ann) Brauner. Nettie will be missed by all. The family extends a special thanks to the staff at Polson North for the loving care and kindness that was provided for their mother as they are very appreciative and thanks to Dr. Bouchard and Dr. Murphy. Close family and friends will attend the celebration of life and interment on September 12, 2014.
