On November 16, 2022, Ella Tiekenheinrich got her wings and went to sing with the Angels. She was 90 years old.
Beloved Wife, Loving Mother & Best Friend; Ella was so special to so many people throughout her years.
Ella was born in Germany in 1932, and grew up during difficult times. Ella married and immigrated to Canada in 1960. Although she faced many hardships throughout her life, with her strong character and loving heart she was able to overcome and survive.
Following the end of her 25 year marriage and the sudden death of her husband Erich in 1981, Ella raised her youngest son. She played the role of Mother and Father in a time when that wasn't common. Despite these struggles, she always provided a loving and warm home.
Ella retired and moved to Chilliwack in 1990 to be closer to old friends and made many new ones too. She enjoyed dancing and socializing at the local German Club and sang with their Choir...and she loved going to the Casinos. Because of her ailing health, she eventually moved to Victoria in 2021 to be closer to her son and daughter-in-law.
Her eldest son, Klaus, passed away in 2020. It is comforting know that Ella, Erich, and Klaus are all reunited again in the after-life. Ella is survived by her son, Andy, and her daughter-in-law, Rhonda.
I love you forever Mom, Rest in Peace...
