Othmar Wenger

Dad passed away peacefully on May 26, 2011 at Parkview, Kinvillage, Tswwassen, B.C. Born in Ruchegg, Switzerland, Othmar emigrated to Canada and settled in the Invermere Valley in 1937, along with his father, Christian, his mother, Frieda, and siblings, Herbert, Yolanda, Honny and Sepp. Life was hard, but made Othmar the strong and honourable man he grew to be. Othmar met the love of his life, Lorraine Cooper and married her in 1949. The C Wenger Lumber Company in Skooumchuck , B.C. was home until 1956. With four children, Jacqueline, Gary, Richard and Christian, life was full and happy. Othmar leaves behind his four children, five grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Othmar will be laid to rest, along with his sister Honny who passed recently, at 2:00 p.m. on September 24 at Mountainview Cemetery. Family and friends will gather at the family reunion home of Cliff and Linda Barkely after the service. Othmar’s family would like to thank Laura Goold and her team at Parkview for Dad’s gentle care.

“Your kindness and compassion made Dad’s later life free of worry and full of laughter”….Peace……
