STOLZ, Edith Marie – Passed away peacefully March 18, 2011 at the age of 92.
Born January 2, 1919 in Grand Forks, Edith married Roy Stolz on March 29, 1941 and raised their three children in Kelowna. Edith & Roy started Paramount Music together and were very involved members of the community.
Predeceased by her husband Roy, Edith is survived by her children Don (Jayne) Stolz of Kelowna, Diane (Wayne) Lougheed of Phoenix & Darlene Shelton of Vancouver. Six grandchildren – Amanda & CJ (Kelowna), Greg, Geoff (Arizona), Lori-Ann (Iowa) Cindy (Vancouver) and 5 great-grandchildren.
Mom, Grandma – we love you and will miss you always. For your kindness, gentleness, generosity, and remarkable sense of humour. You were always there to help, to hug, until you weren’t able anymore, then it was our turn, and we were blessed to be able to give back, to help you, and hug you. We will miss our visits and seeing how much the wonderful care-givers at Sutherland Hills Rest Home loved you too. They were all so caring and wonderful to you and to us, and we are forever grateful to them.
You were the best grandma anyone could ask for. Our children were so lucky to have you and will treasure the memories of you for the rest of their lives. They turned out so well – thanks in no small way to the endless time you spent with them since birth. We now go to Mexico for Amanda & Jeremy’s wedding and take comfort in knowing you’ll be there with us!
A get-together to honour Edith’s life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations will be gratefully accepted by the Kelowna & District Society for Community Living (KDSCL) 555 Fuller Avenue, Kelowna V1Y 7W8
