On September 16, 2016 Olga Hofer was welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven at the age of 86. She leaves to cherish her memory the love of her life Edgar Hofer, her two children; Earl (Jan) Hofer, and Ardeth (Mel) Wittke, fourteen grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents Robert and Augusta Preuss and her sister Hedy Roth. She was born on June 20, 1930, in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Olga was actively involved in her church, where she met her husband of 67 years. They moved from town to the farm in 1960, where they raised their family. Her home was always open to missionaries, family and friends. She loved to bake and her sewing machine could often be heard till all hours of the morning. Family was so important to her and she will be greatly missed. It was her solid faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that sustained her to her last breath. Heaven has gained what we have lost…A very special thank you to the staff at MHRH on 5 East for their loving care. Also a huge thank you to the family of Perkins Restaurant.
