Marieanne Charlotte “LOTTIE” Weinerth

 passed away peacefully on June 12, 2012 at the age of 91 at the Slocan Community Health Centre in New Denver.

In 1953, after a long 2 year wait, Lottie was finally able to immigrate from Germany to join her husband, Henry in Nelson. While raising their young family, Lottie graduated from nursing school and made a career as an LPN at Mount St Francis Hospital. She loved her job and had many stories to tell. Lottie retired from Mt St Francis in 1986 at the age of 65. She then worked in the housekeeping department at the Lord Nelson Hotel until the young age of 80. Finally, at the age of 84 she felt it was time for someone else to do the looking after so she moved to the New Denver Pavilion. Once there she could not let her nursing skills go to waste and kept busy helping with the other residents, folding laundry and even kicking people out of bed so that their sheets could be laundered. The residents loved the attention and the Care Staff loved her for relieving them of some of their duties. Finally, at 91, she decided that her work here on earth was finally finished and now she is able to rest.

She was a loving and caring mother, grandmother and her grandchildren meant the world to her. She loved every minute that she spent with them. Lottie is survived by her son, Peter (Lorelei) Weinerth, daughter Irene Cook and grandchildren Christopher (Julie) Cook, Jason Cook, Mike Weinerth (partner Jennifer) and Kevin Weinerth. She was predeceased by her husband, Henry in 1980.

Lottie touched the hearts of everyone she met and will be sadly missed by all.
