WIETZKE, Adele Magdalene (Prott)

July 23, 1928 – Albersdorf, Germany
August 3, 2014 – Calgary, AB

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our mother, Adele Wietzke who passed away peacefully at Bow View Manor, Calgary, Alberta on Sunday, August 3, 2014 in her 87th year.

Beloved wife of the late Kurt Wietzke (1993). Loving mother of Jerry (Ann) of Calgary, AB, Wolf (Lori) of Salem, ON, Roger (Linda) of Gainesville, FL, Marlene of Vancouver, BC, Wilfred of Victoria, BC, Linda (Tim) of Calgary, AB, Janet (Steve) of Kingston, ON; dearest Oma of Lisa, Meggin, Graham, Morgan, Jasmine, Kristen, Kurt, Danielle, Ashley, Tyler, Tyson; Great Oma to Tavish, James, Benjamin and Avery; dear sister of Paul of Kitchener and August and Peter of Germany; predeceased by brothers, Walter and Alfred and great grandson, Mason.

Mom was one of the hardest working homemakers ever, loved strawberries and watching her afternoon soaps, enjoyed cooking and had a weakness for DQ ice cream cones, bingo and liked to flirt with the casino slots. She always knew when you were lying and had an uncanny sense of knowing before company would unexpectedly show up. Her unconditional love was too often taken for granted, but there will always be a special place in our hearts for her, and she will be truly and dearly missed.

The family would like to thank all of the care givers at Bow View Manor in Calgary for the outstanding care and respect Adele was given over her two and half year stay. Cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at the Memory Gardens Cemetery, Kitchener, Ontario. Condolences may be forwarded through

In living memory of Adele Witezke, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Park Memorial, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

Offer Condolence for the family of WIETZKE, Adele Magdalene (Prott)

    Linda and Family

    So very sorry to read about the passing of your mom Adele. I knew her only briefly during her time at Bowview as she was once a roommate and table mate of my mom Martha (she passed away on Boxing Day last year). Too bad the two of them could not have met at a different time in their lives. Adele had a great spirit and I believe she must have been a hard working woman in her day. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this most difficult time.
