August 23, 1931 – November 17, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Else Kaspar (nee Zapf), at Mountain Lake Seniors Community.
Else is survived by her son Norbert (Ray Lynn), her daughter Karin, grandsons Nathan (Nicole) and Aaron (Natalie), great grandson Nash and sister Gretel Molinari as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Else was born in Bayreuth, Germany to Dorothea and August Zapf, the sixth of nine girls. Upon the death of her youngest sister, she decided to become a nurse. She completed her training in Germany and then travelled to Australia.
There she married Eduard Kaspar. In 1967, the family moved to Canada and Else continued her nursing at Mt. St. Francis where she worked for nearly 30 years. Her retirement years were focused on family, friends, church, music, books, handcrafts and her flower garden.
In 2013, Else moved to Mountain Lake Seniors Community. We would like to thank all the staff for the wonderful care she received during this time. A special thanks also goes out to her friends Maria, Fran and Sarah, whose visits enriched her life so much.
Else lived her life with grace, wisdom and love. She will be sorely missed.
There will be a private graveside service of Christian burial. Thompson’s Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
