February 28, 1932 – December 27, 2016
It is with a heavy heart we announce on Tuesday, December 27, 2016 Anneliese Maria Meger passed away peacefully at her residence in the Mountainview Lodge in Kitimat, BC at the age of 84. Anneliese leaves to cherish her memory her sons, Karl (Susan); Peter (Gale); her daughters Christina (Kim) and Margaret; eight grandchildren: Jackie, Deanne, Cody, Matthew, Samuel, Nikala, Lucas, and Shelby. Anneliese is also survived by seven great grandchildren: Christopher, Taylor, Rae-lynn, Jonathon, Dahlin, Holly and Parker.
She also leaves behind her younger brother Erwin (Teda), sister-in-law, Louise and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Paul in 2005 and older brother Alfred in 2016.
Anneliese Kaminski was born in 1932, in what was known as East Prussia (Germany). In May, 1953 she married Paul Meger. They immigrated to Canada with their two year old son Karl in 1956 and moved to Kitimat. This community became their permanent home. In Kitimat they were blessed with three more children. Mom or “Oma” as the grandchildren fondly would call her, loved reading, especially Danielle Steele books, and any kind of love stories. She enjoyed doing word search puzzles, picture puzzles and she especially loved flowers and gardening. She sure had a green thumb. Mom (Oma) made the best, and we mean the best Christmas Cookies ever!!! We all could not get enough of “Oma’s” Christmas cookies. We are not sure if anyone knew this about Mom, but she had a beautiful singing voice. Just three weeks prior to her passing, her two daughters had the honor and privilege of hearing mom sing several beautiful songs. We joined in; this was definitely a moment to treasure forever! She was a very special woman.
We are so sorry we lost you, we will always love you Mom –
may you rest in peace beside Dad.
Cremation has taken place and a private family internment will follow at a later date. Flowers are gratefully declined – Should you wish – donations in memory of Anneliese Maria Meger may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or the B.C. Cancer Foundation. We would like to thank the staff of Mountainview Lodge for all the care and support they gave our Mom (Oma).
