ANNELEISE ELFRIEDE BERTHA KAMCHEN
(nee SCHULZ)
1931 - 2019

Peacefully on Friday, November 15, 2019, Sonja, as she was known to her friends and family, passed away at Grace Hospital at the age of 88 years.
Beloved wife of Alex and mother of Richard; Sonja was predeceased by brothers, Alfred and Arthur, and sister Andra.
Born in Boizenburg, Germany, she survived fascism and escaped communism, arriving in Canada in 1955. Sonja and Alex built a wonderful life together in Winnipeg. She became a mother in 1974, one whose love and support will always be cherished.
Extremely creative, Sonja poured her talents into sewing and crafts, and became a big hit during the early years of Christkindlmarkt. She was also passionate about gardening, a painter, and adored by her many dogs.
Her warmth, kindness, generosity and tireless spirit will be profoundly missed by those she leaves behind.
In compliance with Sonja's wishes a private service will be held.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I knew Tante Sonja my entire life and she is part of my earliest childhood memories at their cottage at Belair and their home on Grosvenor Ave. She and Onkel Alex, my father's best friend, were closer to my sister, Ursula, and me than our real Aunts and Uncles who live far away in Germany. We have great memories of them, especially at our farms and growing up with Richard who was like a brother to us. I remember Tante Sonja fondly as a very intelligent and creative lady who loved her family and her poodles dearly and had such amazing decorating skills. Everything she did was in good taste and I admired, and later imitated her love of antiques. Please accept our sincerest condolences for your loss, Onkel Alex and Richard. Our family hopes to visit with you soon. Barbie. - Posted by: Barbara Muller (Junior) (Close Friend/Neice) on: Nov 20, 2019

  • To our dear Richard and Alex, We all will miss Sonja so very much. I enjoyed our shopping trips and the lunches at the Pancake House. She was a true lady in every sense of the word. Ron and I enjoyed having her over for coffee and cake on the verandah on the summer evenings. We had great chats! Her garden brought a lot of joy to her and others-what with her beautiful pink roses and Asiatic lilies, also the many perennials. Everything thrived under her care. She loved you both very much-also her little Jackie boy! Rest in Peace dear Friend. Ron and Sue - Posted by: Ron and Susan Craig (Friends and neighbours) on: Nov 19, 2019

  • Dear Sonja was a great sister-in-law and a wonderful human being. She so enjoyed all her dogs. Most important in her life was family. I will miss you so much especially all our phone calls. She leaves a big void now in Alex and Richards life. She loved them both so much. You will be forever missed. Willie - Posted by: Willie Schulz (Sister-in-law) on: Nov 19, 2019
