WENDLAND, Esther Fern
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Esther Fern Wendland on October 15, 2015. Esther passed away peacefully with her children at her side. She was born on January 17, 1933 in Cold Lake Alberta. She was married to Almar Wendland, who predeceased her in 1991. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Esther is survived by her sons, Wayne (Kelly) and Brad (Lynda), daughter, Shelley (Brian) and her brothers Stanford and Hugh Graham.
Esther spent much of her life living and working in North Surrey where she was well known and had many friends and close relationships with those she worked with and cared for. She was a strong woman who put others’ needs before her own. When she wasn’t working, she loved spending time in her garden and especially loved spending time with her family, whom she loved deeply. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Terra, Leah, Keith, Shea, Janelle, Cole and Brayden, & her great-grandchildren Kelvyn, Lily, Olyvia, Abygail and Dominic. Esther will live forever in our hearts and we will always remember her smile, her laugh, her love of animals and her welcoming heart. No service will be held as per Esther’s wishes. If you wish to donate in Esther’s memory, please donate to the Arthritis Society of BC (http://arthritis.ca/support-us).
