Mom was born in the farming community of Rock Glen Sask. daughter to Ann and Jack Kleinfelder. The family later moved to Winnipeg where her ambitious father would eventually open a construction business placing Mom into a whole new world. She met Joseph Missler at the early age of 18 that would lead to a 46 year romance. Nicknamed LUCKY, mom and dad lived most of their lives enjoying family and friends in their home communities of Elmwood, Garden City and Tuxedo. Mom loved to bowl at St. Josephs but most of her time was spent with her family and relatives playing cards and entertaining. Sunday roast beef was a given and the only unknown was how many friends would show up. Mom spent most of those early years working hard so her family could benefit with a better home and life . She epitomized the best mom award for her kind, gentle and nurturing soul .She was the babysitter of choice for many of her nieces and nephews and if you were family, you could do no wrong. In 1985 Mom and Dad made their way west to Kelowna. Retirement was wonderful, golf now replaced bowling and they became founding members of the Kelowna Springs. In 1995 mom retained her membership after dads passing but most of her time was spent surrounded by her family. The last few years were difficult but even with Alzhelmers mom would retain those precious qualities of hers to the very end. Her last days were spent surrounded by family at that very special place , the Kelowna Hospice House. Our thanks go out to all those amazing caregivers during that difficult time. There will not be a day when we wont think of this incredible woman. A private family celebration was held. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the hospice home…..
