SCHOLZ, Karoline Katharine (nee Goeres)

1922 – 2017

Karoline was born August 25, 1922 in Bretheim, Galicia, Poland and went to be with the Lord on December 31, 2017. She married Erwin Scholz on December 9, 1950. They immigrated to Canada in 1956, lived in Winnipeg until their move to Kelowna in 1985. Karoline was predeceased by Erwin and is survived by her son Henry (Janet), daughter Norma; sisters: Henrietta (Herman) Meyer, Herta (Henry) Jandewerth; numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Karoline was a faithful participant in her church, Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, serving in many capacities, including singing in the choir and actively participating in various groups, including Frauenverein. She loved her home, various pets, gardening as well as playing her harmonica and accordion. Karla was a loving and caring mother, friend and member of the community. We are eternally grateful for the staff of Glenmore Lodge where Karla spent her last several months.

A Graveside Service will be held on Monday, January 8th at 10:30 am at the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery, 1991 Bernard Avenue, Kelowna, BC, followed by a reception at Christ Lutheran Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, Okanagan Small Dog Rescue Society, BCSPCA, Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, or a charity of your choice.

    Norma and Family,
    Your Mom had an infectious smile that connected with those that she came into contact with. I was privileged to have known her...we are the sum of all whom we have met.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you al at this time.
