WICKENHEISER, EMILY ANNE
Went to be with the Lord
on Saturday, May 5, 2012
at the age of 26. Survived
by her loving parents Robert
and Lenora Wickenheiser, grandparents Elsie
Wickenheiser, Joe Belanger, Myrna White; aunts
and uncles: George
Ed (Patti) Wickenheiser, Doug (Donna) Wickenheiser, Sharon Fuez, Arthur (Angel)
Wickenheiser, Cindy (Marc) Gruber, Diane Wickenheiser (Darryl Unger), Kelly Belanger, Cali Linley, Nolan (Pat)
Belanger and myriads of cousin. Predeceased by
grandfather Peter Wickenheiser and her uncle Peter
Wickenheiser. Emily was born on Good Friday, March 28, 1986 in Kelowna, where she lived out her life. She faced a great many challenges which she endured with tenacity. Emily was happiest when surrounded by her favourite toys, including: balloons, plastic hangers and small brightly
coloured toys. She greatly enjoyed new clothes, shoes
and beaded necklaces like any real girly–girl.
This little angel seemed to bring happiness to everyone who knew her and somehow managed to wrap every
last one of us around her fingers!
We all have this in common: we loved her like
crazy, we shared her, we enjoyed her company and her
endearing ways, and we will all miss her immeasurably. Emily, you’re our hero. We love you so much.
A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, May 11, 2012
at 11:00 am at Kelowna Christian Center, 905 Badke Road with Pastor David Kalamen officiating. Should family and friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, 4480 Oak Street, Room B321, Vancouver, BC V6H 3V4.
Condolences may be sent to the family by
