Christa passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on February 27th, 2018 at the age of 86.
Christa was predeceased by her husband Tom in 1998 and her daughter Sharon in 2016, as well as her parents and brothers in Germany.
She is survived by her son Harry (Susan) Schumacher Ont., daughters Margaret (Johnny) Port Alberni and Jennifer (Dugald) Chilliwack, grandchildren Shannon (Greg), Robby, Jose (Mark), Josh (Megan), Hannah (Jared), Jillian and Charlotte.
Also to mourn are her sisters Gisela Parksville and Thea of Germany and their families, son-law Paul, great-granddaughters Meaghann and Sabrina as well as relatives across Canada and Germany.
Christa was born in Schwarzbach Germany, the eldest of 6 siblings. She met her husband Tom, the love of her life, while he was serving in the RCAF. Their two eldest were born overseas before moving back to Canada upon Tom’s retirement. They resided in Haileybury, Ontario until 1986 when they moved to Vancouver Island settling in Parksville. Christa and Tom had many happy years together.
Family was very important to Christa despite the distances. She was a very private and proud woman and always enjoyed the company of others especially if they could share a cup of tea or coffee with her.
Her family is very grateful to Dr. Kirtshoff and all the staff at Echo Village for their care and comfort shown to Mom. Thank you very much.
A private celebration of life will be held at a future date. If one desires, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Rest Well Schutz.
