Obituary of Gertrude Kampa

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Gertrude Kampa (nee Weirda) on June 27, 2019 at the age of 94 years. Gert, or Trudy as her long ago coworkers called her, and her family, came to Canada from the Netherlands in 1928. Originally she settled in Ontario but then raised her three rambunctious boys in British Columbia & finally settled in Alberta much later in her life.  Gert continued to have many travels, alone & with friends, & truly enjoyed the great outdoors. One of her greatest loves was toiling in her beautiful gardens. She was an immensely independent & strong women. It was this she carried throughout her life & into her last days.

Gert is survived by her sons, Roy (Vinetta) Knight & Dave (Liz) Knight, multiple grandchildren, great grandchildren & great great grandchildren. She is predeceased by her eldest son, Leonard Knight Jr & her husband, Leonard Knight Sr.

May you forever feel the breeze on your face, the rich soil in your hands & the warm sun on your skin & hear the robin’s song in your ears. Until we meet again.
