It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of (Ingrid) Monica Herrfurth at the age of 78 years. Monica was born in Sudauen, East Prussia, Germany, and immigrated to Canada with her family in the 1950’s. Predeceased by her parents, Minna and Gustav Buchholz, and Father Anton Feneberg. Monica leaves behind her husband of 59 years, Peter, Son Michael (Virginia), Daughter Susan Hample (Matthew), Grand Daughters Scarlett and Molly and the Feneberg family in Germany. Also, numerous cousins, friends and family in Canada and abroad.
She was an amazing Wife, Mother, Grandmother and beloved friend to so many. Professionally, she worked as an Executive Assistant to the Alberta Deputy Minister of Public Works, a workplace she enjoyed for over forty years. Privately, she was a rock and a matriarch to so many. She had a heart of caring, and an authentic love for people that was exceptional. Her faith in God was her guiding light. Her unwavering Christian faith, and her love and generosity found its way into the hearts of all who knew her, and anyone who was in need.
She loved travelling throughout the world with Peter, gardening and keeping her beloved family traditions alive through all seasons. More than anything, she loved God and the people in her life. That was what put the smile on her face and in our hearts.
Dearly Loved, Missed beyond measure,
Mit Jesus In himmlischer Ruhe
