Klassen Funeral Home

1897 Henderson Highway, Winnipeg, MB


Mrs. Marianne Elfriede FLERIC

23 March, 194117 August, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mom, mother-in-law, and Oma. She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Hans, daughters Diane, Stephanie (Russell), and grandchildren Kayla, Sarah, Eric, and Nicole. She is also mourned by her “other” daughter, Ramona Schwark.

Born in Waldenburg, Schlesien, she endured many hardships growing up in war-torn Germany. Her faith in God got her through many difficult times throughout her life, and she taught us to never lose hope. Mom was a hard worker, and did whatever it took to make ends meet, to keep her family fed, warm, and loved. She was known to all for her kindness and warmth, and was always quick to smile. She loved to dance, bowl, and play cards with her best friends.

In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place. Due to the pandemic, there will be no funeral.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.

Rest in peace, Oma. Aufwiedersehen Mama.

My dearest mama, I miss you so much. I am so sorry we didn't get to be together. I would give anything to have one more day with you. The only thing that makes life bearable is that I know you are whole again and you are in the arms of God. Til we meet again. Love your daughter, Diane

I am so sorry to hear of Marianne’s passing. I met Marianne years ago at Shapes Fitness Centre and we fast became friends. We attended the Olympic Curling trials together and I visited Hans and Marianne in their home.
Marianne had the most beautiful smile and was a kind, caring and beautiful lady... she will be missed!
My deepest sympathy to Hans, her children and grandchildren at this sad time!
Rest In Peace Marianne
