On March 7, 2013, Elfriede lost her long battle with cancer.
Fritz and Elfriede moved to St. Albert 13 years ago after living at Island Lake, where they spent a lot of time on the water and tending to their beautiful flower gardens. Fritz and Elfriede also worked hand in hand at the Lodge Motel in Athabasca. Elfriede was also co-owner in the Hair Clinic.
Elfriede leaves to mourn two daughters and one son, Suzan (John) Slootweg, Fred (Nevis) Prufer and Regina (Garry) Shaw–semicolon– grandchildren, Jody (Jayme) Metcalfe Gorski, Ashley (Leland) Irving, Jordan Prufer, Christian Prufer and Carrie Shaw–semicolon– great-grandchildren, Marcus, Juliana, Jayme Jr. and Halle. Elfirede was predeceased by her husband, Fritz.
At Elfriede’s request, a private family service will take place. The family would like to thank the staff at Youville Home for the care and compassion shown to Elfriede, and her family members.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Youville Home, 9A St. Vital Avenue, St. Albert, AB, T8N 1K1.
