Christine (Oma) Bender

May 5, 1921 ~ April 15, 2020 (age 98)


Oma went home to be with her Heavenly Father in the afternoon of April 15, 2020.  Oma was a few weeks shy of her 99th birthday.  She was born in Tariverde, Romania and immigrated to Canada in 1957.  She and her husband Jakob (deceased 1983) had four children; Irmgard, Hugo (Pamela), Lore and Ed (Tami).  She also leaves grandchildren, great and great, great grandchildren.  She loved her family so much and all of us will miss her a lot.  But we know she is now at perfect peace and rest with her husband and in the loving hands of her Saviour, Jesus.  If friends so desire, Oma wanted to have donations go to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary to support the great work they do with helping kids.  We really want to thank the staff at the Lodge at Valley Ridge, staff at AHS and Dr. Nathalie deBruin. Your love, care and attention to Oma will never be forgotten.  There will be no service at this time, a celebration of Oma’s life will happen at a later date.
