Armgard WEINRATH

nee von Jacobi. Armgard Anna Weinrath passed away peacefully, on Friday March 1, 2013 in her hometown of Chilliwack, BC. She is survived by four children, Pat (Peter), Michael (Janet), Diane (Jack), and Tessa (Kenny), nine grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren and her brother, Andreas von Jacobi (Christiane). She is predeceased by her sister Mechtiilde, parents Anna and Karl von Jacobi, and her beloved husband Theodor Weinrath. Armgard was born in Brausendorf, Germany on February 20, 1927. She emigrated to Canada in the 1960‘s and was known to all in Canada as “Armi”. At first, she lived and worked in Montreal as a secretary. In 1971, she moved to BC and married her beloved Theo. Together they raised his four children, who in turn blessed them with 9 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Armgard was a loving wife who worked side by side with her best friend and husband in varied successful business ventures including a corner grocery store and a cleaning business. They lived in many communities across the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland. She didn’t need much: a dachshund at her side, a piano to play, and a ticket to Hawaii in her pocket. We will all remember Oma with much love. Visitation will be held on Friday March 8, 2013 at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church, 8909 Mary Street, Chilliwack, BC at 10:15 am with the funeral following there at 11 am and then a graveside service at Vedder View Valley Cemetery, 44675 Watson Road. There will be a tea at the Mount Cheam Lions Hall, 45580 Spadina, at approximately 12:30 for all who wish to reminisce and honour her memory. Special thanks to Dr. Jones and the staff at Bradley Centre for their warm care.
