Erna Alexandra One Spot Gingold, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, July 26,2008 at the age of 79years.
Erna was born in Schlesien Germany on February 9, 1929. She obtained her RN degree in England, and then emigrated to Canada. After the passing of her husband Edward One Spot, Erna remained living in her home on Tsuu T’ina. As her health started to fail Erna found it necessary to move into Continuing Care Centres. She spent three months at the Bethany Care Centre, and was then transferred to her new home at the Father Lacombe Care Centre.
Erna will be lovingly remembered by her nephew Roland Gingold in Germany; her step daughters, Linda, Grace, and Yvonne; and by many long time friends. She was predeceased by her husband Edward One Spot.
