After a brief but courageous battle with cancer, Selma Hemminger went home to be with her Lord on

February 3, 2014 at the age of 83 years. She was born

on March 14, 1930 in Poland and immigrated to Canada

in 1938. Selma will be greatly missed by her loving husband Adolf, with whom she enjoyed 62 years of marriage. 

Mom will also be missed but fondly remembered by

her children, Cecelia (Harold) Jantz, Gail (Bob) Hildenbrandt and Robert (Sheila) Hemminger; 7 grandchildren, Rachael (Aaron), Heather, Emma, Travis, Jeffrey, Rochelle and Melissa; 2 great-grandchildren, Lily and Adelyn; and sisters

Wanda (Eric) Hemminger and Gerda (Norm) Coull. 

She was predeceased by her parents Robert and Anna

Guderjan.  A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 11:00 am at First Lutheran Church
