LIPINSKI, Karin Luise. May 2nd 1944 –

August 27th 2013. It is with overwhelming sadness we announce the passing of Karin, loving wife and mother. Karin was born in Aschaffenburg, Germany before starting her new life in Canada. Along side her husband Fredo, she ventured into many different businesses and dreams. Karin loved to garden, walk the many wonderful local trails and take camping trips with her close friends. Her other passion for so many years was vacationing down South in California where she met so many amazing people that she often referred to as her “second family“. She looked so forward to getting back, and was deeply saddened when she realized she would not be able to. During her sickness she was in awe at the outpouring of love she received from that second family.

Karin is survived by her loving husband Fredo; her sons Michael (Jennifer) and Sascha (Julie) and Grandchildren Phoenix, William and Chrystal.

Her brother Tony and sisters Ilse, Betty, Nora and Gerda. Special thank you to Dr. Nyirenda who Karin always thought so much of. Our family can not thank you enough. Also special thank you to Dr. Bull, Amanda and Tracy from palliative care. Thanks also to Dr. Zulfiqar. “Your pain is finally over”

An intimate gathering remembering Karin will be held on Sunday, September 22nd at 2:00 pm at the Yarrow Community Grand Hall 4670 Community St., Yarrow. For anyone who would like to attend. Dress to be casual. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or to Chilliwack Hospice Society.
