It is with deep sorrow that the family announces the passing of Olga Roesch. Olga passed away peacefully on April 13, 2010 at the Invermere District Hospital at the age of 88.
Born in Frutigen, Switzerland on May 28, 1921, Olga immigrated to the Columbia Valley as a young girl and has lived here ever since. She loved the mountains, the Columbia valley and was proud to call this her home. Olga’s hands and mind were always busy, she loved playing cards, knitting or telling stories of her life experiences, she was the family historian.
She will be dearly missed by her son Lawrence, daughter Josette Jarche (Wolfgang), and Randy (Nikki), grandchildren Stephan, Michael, Kristine, & Sheryl and their families. She is predeceased by her husband Joseph Roesch in 1976 and all of her sibilings.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Olga’s memory to either STARS Air Ambulance or the East Kooteny Foundation for Health ( Invermere).
