Christel Bohn was taken suddenly from us on Monday, September 14, 2009 at the Rockyview Hospital after a short illness with her two daughters, Ina and Michele by her side. She will be greatly missed and most fondly remembered for her ceaseless desire to laugh, that mischievous twinkle in her eye and her warm hugs.

A Celebration of her life / open house will be held at the home of Alan and Ina Herring on Sunday, September 20, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. For further information please contact McInnis and Holloway.  Forward condolences through  If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Alzheimer Society of Calgary, Suite 201, 222 – 58th Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB  T2H 2S3, Telephone: (403)290-0110,

Schnell tritt der tod den menschen an,

 es ist ihn kine frist gegeben,

 es riesst ihn aus der vollen bahn,

 es riesst ihn mitten aus den leben.

Frei Nach, Schiller

  1. I thought of Christel like my own grandmother. She was an inspiration for many. She had a warm heart and a gentle soul. I will never forget the wonderful hugs she would always give me everytime I saw her and the way her laughter would light up the room. I know she will be missed dearly by everyone who knew her. Thank you for letting me be a part of her life for so many years.

    All my love, Tammy xo

  3. To Michelle and Ina, Ralph & Roland:
    Your Mom Christel has been a very good friend of mine for many years. Unfortunately, we have lost touch as of late, but that does not mean that she will be forgotten. She is at peace now and that hopefully will help in your grief over having lost a loving and caring Mother.
