    Dear Alex, Kenny & Cathy, Bruce & Marg, Donald & Denise and family,

    Aunt Tykie was special to me and I will miss not being able to telephone her for a visit every few months. It saddens me to know that of that generation of Kepplers she’s the last to have passed; I will miss the connection of her to my own father, Hank. It was wonderful that Auntie kept records of the family tree over the years, doing her best to ensure family births, weddings, and important dates were recorded accurately. Even though it was her time and she was ready to leave this world, it’s difficult for those left behind; it is in these times we remember family memories wishing we had more information regarding dates, names, and to hear stories of how and why things happened in the family the way they did. Good-bye Aunt Tykie. See you and the extended family in the next life!

  5. Kurt & Arlene Keppler says:

    Please accept our condolences on the passing of Aunt Tykie. She will be forever remembered as a wonderful aunt who cared for family and friends, and was always a welcoming presence. When Arlene and I moved to Calgary many years ago, she became a substitute mother for the both of us, opening up her home in so many different ways.
    To Alex, Kenny, Bruce, and Don, family and extended family and friends…we are so very sorry for your loss. – Kurt

    So sad to hear about your mom, my Aunt Tykie-will never forget her enchanting smile and the family gathering around while she played the piano, singing “their” hits. Always a special place in my heart-I know how much you will miss her as I miss her brother, Henry (Hank), my father and mother, Fern. So hard to accept that this incredible family of 5 children of our grandparents are all gone-we will carry on the Keppler traditions of love and family. Thanks to Auntie to setting an incredible example of endurance and resilience. Love to my cousins and their families, Kerry xxoo
