LIESEL RITTINGER (published on November 25, 2007)

LIESEL RITTINGER April 26, 1926 to November 22, 2007 Mom was given the challenge of her life. To battle with cancer. Her challenge lasted for three years which she fought long and hard everyday with a positive attitude and two shots a day of her diboszha . On Thursday, November 22, 2007 cancer won the battle and took her to be with Papa who predeceased her by eight years and was recently predeceased by her son-in-law George who teased her relentlessly but lovingly. Her family meant the world to her. She leaves behind her daughter Anne (Jim); son Wolfgang (Judy); daughters, Debbie, Tracy (Orest) and her grandchildren, Lee-Anna (Mike), Lynn (Cory), Adrian (Kaylah) and her Little Angel ; her great-grandson, Cade. Mom was affectionately known to many as Oma some even called her Super Oma . Mom had a wonderful of sense of humor. Give her a cup of coffee and a good dose of gossip and her attention was perked for hours, sometimes even days. She was the inventor of a new language - Genglish . Her conversation always started out with great effort in English then somewhere in between it would revert to German, a gentle reminder to speak English would provoke her response nah they should learn to speak German . Heideland is where mom called home. Built for their retirement, mom and papa lived there since 1989. She had many wonderful friends there who came to visit and share a cup of coffee or a drink. We are grateful to all who took care of her needs when we weren't able to be out there. It is a gathering place for family and friends and good times were to be had by all especially Oma . Mom was also a wonderful dancer, the tango being her favorite, but a waltz or polka would certainly get her up on the dance floor. In accordance with mom's wishes cremation has taken place and no service will be held. In lieu of flowers if so desired donations can be made to St. Boniface Hospital Research Foundation - Palliative Care or CancerCare Manitoba, St. Boniface Unit. We wish to thank Dr. D. Tsang, the emergency staff at St. Boniface Hospital and especially Dr. St. Goddard and all the staff on Palliative care at the St. Boniface Hospital who cared for mom. To the Pearson family with whom we shared a special bond and created a wonderful friendship, we wish you all Godspeed and thank you for your kindness and warm smiles. Mom, we all miss you very much, and it is with very heavy hearts that we had to say good-bye to you. Even though we knew that the time was at hand we were still so unprepared. You were surrounded by all who love and adore you just as we promised you were not alone. Go now and dance again with Papa. Ruhe Sanft Mom, Oma. KORBAN FUNERAL CHAPEL 956-2193
