Bertha Nuefeld
November 21, 1919 - December 10, 2011

On, Saturday, December 10, 2011 Bertha Neufeld journey’s on this earth ended when she was welcomed Home by her Heavenly Father, her beloved Ben and so many others who were waiting!

Bertha was born November 21, 1919 in Teddington, Saskatchewan . She married Bernard (Ben) Neufeld in 1938 . They lived in Lost River, Saskatchewan until 1956 when they headed west with their family finally settling in 100 Mile House, BC in 1960. They moved to Kamloops in 1989.

She was predeceased by her first son at his birth, her parents Henry and Katherina Peters, husband Ben, sisters Tina, Mary and Margaret, and chosen grandson, Roger Lulua.

Left behind to miss her are her sons Harold (Grace), Leonard (Marie), and Waine (Sharon), and chosen daughter Donna; grandchildren Scott and Raena (Matt) Sutherland, Teri and Kent (Cindy), Julie (Mike) Lange and Jonathan (Elise); greatgrandchildren Taeven Sutherland, Benjamin and Paige, Jaidyn Lange, Angel and Brandon. She will also be remembered by sisters Agnes and Sarah plus other family members and many longtime friends!

Mom (“Little Bertha“) was a quiet powerhouse whose amazing Mennonite baking and cooking still causes all who enjoyed it to salivate! Her immaculate home was always open to those who needed a bed or a meal. Her days were also filled with quilting and sewing and gardening and caring for others. The Evangelical Free Churches of 100 Mile House and Kamloops were blessed to have her in their church families.

After her sons were grown and married, she and Dad brought a baby girl, Donna, into their home to love and nurture.

In her last years, Mom’s mind began to fade and with it, her inhibitions (quietness) faded! She was free to be playful, ready to tease and sing and laugh…. And share any thoughts she had!

Our family honours Mom for her servant heart, her wisdom, her faithfulness, her integrity and her deep love for others and her Lord.

Have a wonderful eternity, Mom! We’ll miss you.

Heartfelt thanks to Dr. P. Yanko and the caring staff in Orchard Lane in Ridgeview Lodge and her loving church family.

Graveside service @ Hillside Cemetery Wednesday, December 14, 2011 at 1:00 pm; Celebration of her Life following at 2:00 pm at Kamloops Funeral Home. Pastor Rob Cave officiating.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to The Gideon Bible Society or The Kamloops Evangelical Free Church.

Bill Inglis
April 11, 1971- December 28, 2011

“If you see me getting smaller, I’m leaving, don’t be grieving, just gotta get away from here, If you see me getting smaller, don’t worry, I’m in no hurry, I’ve got the right to disappear.”……… Waylon Jennings.

Bill leaves his dad Bill, sister Kelly, nieces Jade, Shae Lyn and Dakoda and nephew Jack to miss his humor and easy presence every day. He is also survived by his aunts, uncles and cousins who he knew all loved and supported him. Bill had friends from childhood who were more like brothers to him, and family to us, Gord and Geoff we can’t thank you enough. Bill always made friends easily with his humor and authentic way, even at work, Paul, Chris and Homer; we felt we knew you because Bill always spoke of you with a smile. We know Bill is now at peace with our mom Jackie who passed away in 2006. Bill and our dad were the best of pals; Bill always called him Wilbur and made us all laugh. I can’t express how much Dad treasured and cared for Bill from his first day until his last, despite the unbearable pain of losing such a loved child. Thank you to Dr. Newmarch and to all of the nurses who cared for Bill. In lieu of flowers a kind act paid forward to someone in need would be Bill’s wish, or even better in his opinion would be to take yourself to a Rolling Stones concert and think of him when they play Ruby Tuesday. Rest Easy Our Billy Boy.
