OSTERMAN, Florence

Posted: June 12th, 2020


FLORENCE OSTERMAN (née Mardian) passed away surrounded by family on Tuesday, June 9, 2020—the week of her 94th birthday.

She leaves her beloved children: Patricia (Leo) Meier and their children, Derrick and Colleen; Gloria (Ken) Lillehei and their children, Dawn and Scott; Kenneth (Melva) Osterman and their children, Tricia and Shaun; Judy (Ken) Holmes and their children, Brandi, Jennifer and Crystal; Tim (Darcy) Osterman and their daughter, Megan; Cynthia (Mark) Locking and their children, Cory and Cody; as well as 15 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her parents, Mary & Hilarious Mardian; her husband, Casimir Osterman; her son, Garry; and her grandson, Tyler.

Florence was born in Prelate, SK on June 12, 1926. She always lived life to the fullest; she never missed dressing up for Halloween and adding decorations for every special occasion—there were hearts everywhere on each Valentine’s Day. Some of her greatest loves were her grandchildren; a call, visit, or special craft made for her always filled her heart with love. During her time at Garden View Lodge, her passion for dancing was brought back to life by her love, Jim Bayford. They never missed a waltz.

A Private Funeral Service will be held on June 15, 2020 at 11:00 AM. Due to the ongoing gathering restrictions, the service will be closed to immediate family only; however, family and friends that are not in attendance are welcome to watch via livestream under her obituary on our website.

The family thanks Garden View Lodge, Dr. Thusi and his nurse Jen, and the entire palliative care team.

In lieu of flowers, Mom would love for you to buy a Tim Hortons coffee for someone and share a laugh with them.
