Obituary of Alma Goertz
Nettie Alma Goertz, known as Alma, was born October 10, 1928 in rural Saskatchewan, near the town of Main Centre to William and Helen (nee Fast) Neufeld.
She passed into the loving presence of her Heavenly Father on May 24, 2021 from Sagewood Agecare in Strathmore, Alberta. I’m sure she was eagerly awaited and welcomed by her parents, husband and 3 children and many other loved ones who had predeceased her.
She is survived by her brother, Henry Neufeld, Red Deer, AB, 9 of her 12 children, Ruth (Dan) Styles, Dan (Deb) Goertz, Miriam (Ray) Ost,Katherine (Keith) Goertz Thompson, Jim (Cathy) Goertz, Tim (Helen) Goertz, Judy (Tim) Dyck, Grace Goertz, and Rob ((Meredith) Goertz, 54 grandchildren, 68 great grandchildren, and 12 great great grandchildren.
She was predeceased by Hector, 2, in 1966, husband, Isaac in 1984, Dave in 2004 and Elizabeth in 2020.
We all felt so loved and special to her and she has nicknames for many of us.
Her great gift to us all was her anchor in her relationship with God, through His son, Jesus, which she began as a young girl and continued faithfully right until her death. Her faith lives on.
Till we meet again, precious mother!
