December 8, 1938 – December 12, 2015
Sophie Fietkau (nee Pukart) left our world on December 12, 2015 at the Langley Memorial Hospital, under sad circumstances. The painful void of her loss is deeply felt by her relatives and friends. Sophie was born in Granfenstein, Austria on December 7, 1938, together with her twin brother Joseph Pukart, who survives her. Her parents were Simon and Genoveva Pukart. Her beloved sister, Maria Pukart, predeceased her. In 1963, she married Horst Manfred Fietkau (of Berlin, 1939?1985) in Toronto. Sophie is survived by daughter Christine (John), son Walter, and his two children, Wyatt and Kole, all of whom she loved dearly. Sophie’s children and grandchildren were her life. And her friends were dear to her. We burn candles in our hearts for her, and remember, with profoundest gratitude, her positive contributions to our lives. A funeral service, a celebration of life service, and a concert are being planned to honour our beloved Sophie’s memory.
