LAWRENCE-FUNKE, Erica Elizabeth

December 13, 1949 – Sundern, Germany
June 27, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Erica Lawrence-Funke of Calgary, AB, passed away on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at the age of 68 years. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

The eldest of four children, Erica was born on December 13, 1949, in Sundern, Germany, and emigrated to Canada, at the age of six, with her mother, father, and siblings.

Erica is survived by her mother, Theresia; brother Michael; sisters, Ursula and Nancy; daughters, Tamii and Cindy; and her grandsons, Dakota and Dylan. Erica was predeceased by her father, Wolfram.

Erica found joy in the small, special moments in life. She loved her cats, getting together with family at family events, and occasionally gathering with her friends at karaoke. She shared a love of watching hockey with her mom (sometimes watching hockey together while talking on the phone). She loved to read, doing crossword puzzles, and playing cards and games. She spent many hours with her new-found companion, Ron, after she moved to her new home, during the last 2 ½ years of her life. She will be missed. Rest in peace, dear Erica.

A memorial service will be held in her honour at, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, in High River (910 12 Avenue SW), on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.  Reception to follow.  Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
