Rest in peace Beatrice Kuepfer, Suzie's Mom.

Where are we today ?
        We are saddened today with the news of the passing of Suzie's mother Beattie Kuepfer about 8 am Ontario time at Nithview Retirement Community after a lengthy illness and many health issues. It was not  unexpected but we had hoped to make it there before she passed.
        This picture below was taken at a family gathering last August I believe, she looked pretty good then and was pretty spry. Suzie spent a lot of time with her mom before we headed south.
        Her Mom was an amazing woman and everyone loved her and will miss her greatly.
Beatrice (Beattie) Kuepfer
        We are flying out of Yuma tomorrow morning and will arrive back in New Hamburg late tomorrow night for a couple weeks. Most of the family was by her side so she was not alone.
        No details are available yet. That will come in a few days.
        The rest of our day was a blur and insignificant.
        We are doing as well as can be expected and will get through this tough time with family and friends.


Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this Fall and Winter..

  9. Oh I am so sorry. I can only imagine that you would have wished to be home in time, but also glad that she had loved ones around. It is impossibly hard to lose a Mom, no matter what age and no matter how expected. Heart felt hugs to you, Suzie, and to you George as well, who I am sure was a fabulous son-in-law to her. Travel safe.

  11. So very sorry for your loss. I know you both loved her and did all you could to make her last years so very happy. You spent so much time with her in the last year. I'm certain she was happy to know that you were living your dream this past winter.

  12. Charlie's Mum, Lynn this time. I am so sorry to hear of your Mum passing Suzie. It is so hard to lose a Mum. They are such special people in our lives. I know ..... I lost my Mum in early November, last year. It seems like yesterday. She was almost 97 but it doesn't matter the age it's still so very hard. She had a different name too. Her name was Keitha. A bit more unusual than Beatrice I guess. I do hope she and Beattie will meet up in their new life, wherever it may be. I am sure they would be good friends. Huuuuuuugs!!!!!!!!
