It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Margarete (Gretel) Kleiber of Fairmont Hot Springs, BC. Gretel passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on May 3, 2019 at the age of 89 years, due to complications of a medical procedure. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Heinz, her sister Karla (Germany) her children, Hans (Pattie), Rosemarie (Wayne), Norbert (Holly), Russell, Dagmar Sanchez, 5 grandchildren, Cameron (Julie), Carmelle (Brad), Allison (Chris), Ryan, Grant and 7 great grandchildren, Zoe, Payton, Marlie, Nova, Amadeus, Ruby, Scarlette. Gretel will be remembered for her caring heart and her engaging personality. She was also known for her fabulous rouladen and streusel kuchen which everyone loved. Gretel was devoted to her husband and to her faith in God. Gretel immigrated to Canada from Germany with her husband Heinz in 1951. They made their way to Edmonton where they raised their children and were very active in the original Central Baptist church, most importantly with the choir.

At Gretel’s request cremation has taken place. A memorial service will take place at Central Baptist Church, 9419-95 St SW, Edmonton on May 11th at 1pm. A luncheon will follow.

I have fond memories of Gretel When I was a child and teenager growing up in Edmonton. Her beautiful voice in church choirs was a joy to listen too. Also, Gretels hospitality was warm and inviting. Delicious meals prepared with love and the finest ingredients; not to mention her delightful and exquisitely decorated cakes..torte! She indeed leaves a beautiful legacy.
