Ursula Maria "Ursel" Platz

Aug 9, 1930 – Nov 20, 2017
It is with great sadness that the family of Ursula (“Ursel”) Platz announces her passing on Monday November 20, 2017 at the age of 87.

Ursula was born in Germany on August 9, 1930. In her mid twenties Ursula ventured to South Africa where she met and married her husband Alfred in 1958. In 1964 Ursula and Alfred moved to Canada with their three young children, finally settling in Cranbrook in 1966.

Ursula will be greatly missed by her many friends. Ursula was an active member of the East Kootenay German Canadian Club. Ursula had many fond memories skiing at the Kimberley Ski Resort and golfing at Mission Hills.

Ursula is survived by her husband Alfred, her sons Klaus and Rudolf (Diane), her daughter Gudrun (Peter) Seredynski, her grandchildren Antony, Alexander (MirandaLee), Andreas, Amanda and Anita, her brother Hans (Joan) Rehrmann, nephews Norman (Paula) Rehrmann, Robert (Rebekah) Rehrmann, Tony (Caroline) Rehrmann, Erik (Jeremy) Rehrmann and their families.

Ursula was predeceased by her parents Maria (Schmidt) and Anton Rehrmann, her brother Franz Rehrmann and her sister-in-law Cuza Rehrmann.

Ursula’s family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. Scheibenstock and the third floor nursing staff at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital for the exceptional care provided to Ursula.

A celebration of Ursula’s life will take place at a later date.

If friends desire, memorial donations may be made in Ursula’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Fund of B.C.
