Mom was raised in Gnadenthal alongside four sisters. She often spoke of how blessed she was to have grown up in such a loving home. She was a joyful, loving and funny person. She had a caring spot in her heart for everyone that she met or got to know throughout her life and because of that, everyone had great respect for her.
In 1957, mom and dad met, were baptized a few years later and married on November 27, 1960. Mom was a hard worker. She spent nine years at the Sewing Factory and then in 1974, she became known in the community as “the lady that sells watermelon” when she and dad started a new adventure as built the best life possible for their two sons, Al and Scott. Mom and dad shared over 60 wonderful years together. When in their presence, you would be sure to hear them playfully bickering back and forth, out of love and to get a funny rise out of each other. You could always tell that mom was so happy just to be around her family, husband and friends.
Mom leaves to mourn her passing her loving husband, Lawrence, two sons, Al (Lisa) Giesbrecht, Scott (Tine) Giesbrecht, seven grandchildren, Jesse (Korah), Nikki (Pele), Andy (Heidi), Gina (Dawson), Rhett, Lane and Kale, one great grandson, Bentley and one sister, Mary (Ed). She was predeceased by her parents and three sisters.
