IRMA STARK (NEE ROTH)

Date: September 15th, 2018

 

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Irma Stark on September 15, 2018.  She died peacefully in hospice care, after a short illness, at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, BC at the age of 96.

 

Predeceased by her husband Reuben, brother Walter, and sisters Lillian and Alice, Irma is survived by her sons Gerald (Louise), Loren (Sigrid), Randy (Julie) and her daughter Diane Sheppard (Steve), 11 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

 

Irma Roth was born in Snahomish County, Washington, the youngest of four siblings.  Very early in her life her parents relocated to Forestburg, Alberta and subsequently to Camrose, Alberta where she grew up and married Reuben Stark. 

 

A few years after the death of Reuben in 1970, she moved from Calgary to Abbotsford, BC where she resided for 35 years before recently moving to White Rock, BC.

 

Throughout her life, Irma was active in the Church, playing the piano and organ for the choir.  Her unwavering faith in God sustained her throughout her life and helped her cope with life’s difficult moments.   She loved to travel and visited many countries including Romania, Russia and New Zealand.  An accomplished knitter, she knitted and donated hundreds of caps for newborns to local hospitals, despite suffering with severe arthritis.

 

Irma’s kindness and approachable demeanor endeared her to all her friends.  Mom’s enduring wit and wisdom always helped her loved ones deal with life’s ups and downs.  Her sense of humour and love of family will be remembered always.

 

We would like to extend our utmost thanks to the wonderful staff at Peace Arch for their compassionate care and kindness during her final days.

 

A Graveside Service will be held at 1:30pm on Friday, September 28, 2018 at CENTURY MEADOWS CEMETERY, Hwy 21, north of Camrose, Alberta.
