August 25, 1939 to July 9, 2016
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Karin Thoma (nee Haase) on July 9, 2016 in the presence of her daughter.
Predeceased by her parents Helmut and Edith (2007) and brother Norbert (2000). Karin leaves behind to mourn her passing her partner, Robert Holm, his children Cyndi, Jamie, Robbie and their families, son Glenn, daughter Susan Trogi (Rick), grandchildren Julian, Ryan, Candace, Collin (Justine), Brittany (Kevin), Derek (Jaz), sister Dagmar Kropp (Fred), niece Rhonda Kropp-Dettman (Jeremy) and great nephew Elliot.
Karin was born in Berlin, Germany and immigrated with her family to Canada in 1955, first residing in Edmonton before moving to Kitimat where she lived for 61 years. She was known for her loving heart and generous nature. Her family was her life and she will forever be remembered as Oma to many.
Our family would like to thank all our good friends, neighbours and co-workers for their support during this difficult time. We will be forever grateful for your cards, flowers, gifts of food, words of comfort and especially your hugs.
We would also like to express our appreciation and thanks to Dr. Huang, the hospital nursing staff and Karin’s home care nurses for all their care and support over the last several years.
In honouring Karin’s wishes, there will be no funeral service.
Forever in our hearts.
