CHIQUITA MEREDITH FRIDRICH
May 11, 1936 – January 21, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Chiquita Meredith Fridrich, of Winnipeg, on January 21, 2015 at the age of 78.
Chiquita is survived by her daughter Georgia Valentonis Milne and her two grandchildren, Logan and Marina Milne. Also left to mourn are her siblings: brother Jerry Texmo, and sisters Mary Anne Sundstrom (Gerry) and Linia Texmo, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family in Canada, the U.S. and Germany. Chiquita was predeceased by her husband Erich Fridrich in 2002.
Chiquita (or “Chickie” as she was known to her friends and family) was a caring and nurturing wife, mother, grandmother, sibling and a great friend to many. She loved to cook and host visiting friends and family, as she was very kind-hearted and social. Her grandchildren Logan and Marina were very precious to her. She also loved to play cards, read, listen to her favourite music, as well as display her skill and creativity through knitting and crocheting. Chickie would always be depended on to help in whatever capacity she was able. She spent many years as a health care worker, which she enjoyed so much, was so well suited to, and was very appreciated by her clients.
Cremation has taken place and there will be a private family interment at a later date.
Flowers are gratefully declined, instead if you wish please make a donation in Chickie’s name to your favourite charity.
“Those we love do not go away,
they walk beside us everyday.”
Sobering Funeral Chapel Crematorium, Beausejour, in care of arrangements.
