It is with great sadness we mourn the death of Herbert Nuesslein, a beloved husband, father and grandfather. He will also be deeply missed by the Invermere Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses and many close friends.
Herbert is survived by his wife Hilde, son David Nuesslein (Deanna), daughter Eunice Kortegaard (Gorm) and grand-daughter Elise.
Herbert and Hilde arrived in Invermere in 1971 with their children Eunice and David. Since that time Herbert and Hilde have been an integral part of the Invermere Congregation, and have distinguished themselves by their generosity, hospitality and zeal. Herbert expended himself for the congregation and there were few people not touched by his integrity, kindness, and large-heartedness. He was especially noted for his fervour for the ministry and many in the valley received regular visits from him.
There was a special place in his heart for anyone struggling and disadvantaged, and he was quick to help out wherever he saw a need, quietly, without fanfare.
His love for Jehovah and his family was always evident. Herbert was well known in Columbia House North Wing for his twice daily visits to Hilde, often bringing her flowers and fruit. He wanted to “see her through another season”. It was not to be. He died peacefully on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, surrounded by special friends who would not let him die alone. We eagerly await his resurrection as promised (John 5:28,29) and we are comforted that he is sleeping peacefully in Jehovah’s memory.
There was a Memorial Service held for Herbert on Saturday March 2, 2013 at the Invermere Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
He will be missed by many.
