March 17, 1947 - April 29, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edith Hofer of Warren, Manitoba.
Edith's memory will be cherished by her son, Chris; daughter-in-law, Paula; and family.
After a long eight and a half months in the hospital, Mom peacefully went to sleep, surrounded with nothing but pure love and admiration, just to be reunited with the love of her life, Sam.
Mom fought a hard battle this past year and we could not be more proud of her. She tried the best she could, but ultimately wanted to go home to be with Dad. The strength she had shown is something we will never forget.
Countless hours of conversations with Mom over this past while, leaves us with an enormous sense of love and pride. We will cherish these memories as it proved to us just how content and at peace Mom truly was.
Right up until her last days, Mom managed to enjoy the music she loved so much. I truly believe she's strumming her guitar and harmonizing with Dad to the countless songs they sang together.
Mom loved her grandchildren, Taylor (Ty), Amy (Connor) and Josh. She made sure to tell them every chance she could, just how proud of them she was. Nothing could have made Mom happier than being a grandma, except maybe her great-grandchildren, Levi and Harper. How incredibly special they were to her! Our niece, Shelby, was also like a grandchild to Mom and Dad. We will forever cherish the fun memories we all share.
Mom's big heart only opened wider when we welcomed Thalissa, Natalia and Camron into our family. They soon learned where Gramma's infamous candy drawer was. She always managed to keep it fully stocked so the kids always had a special treat.
Mom was my biggest cheerleader and greatest support. I will feel her loss every day.
I love you Mom, but I know you are where you wanted to be, with Dad, together again.
May we all take comfort in our memories.
Also left to mourn are Mom's siblings, Annie, Laura, Ruby, Pat and Jim; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and countless friends.
We would like to thank all the staff at the Stonewall District Hospital who became part of our family. The love, compassion and care you provided for Mom will forever remain in our hearts. She truly cared about each and every one of you.
Service to be determined at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Mom's name to South West District Palliative Care.
Ken Loehmer Funeral Service
In care of arrangements

Condolences & Memories (9 entries)
I first met Sam and Edith in 1982 when Sam would stop at my donut shop in Portage la Prairie with his Greyhound bus. We remained friends until their demise. Wonderful couple. - Posted by: Bernie Wright (Friend ) on: Jun 11, 2020
I first met Edith and Sam when they lived in Warren and ran a bobcat business. They were always helpful in providing services (bobcats, snow removal, and summer landscape work related to maintenance) for the school division. I especially liked to listen to their musical performances in DONNA, TEXAS at Palm Shadows rec hall. Gone too soon along with other great performers. - Posted by: PAT LENNOX (FRIEND) on: May 21, 2020

We wish to extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of (Sam & Edith). Knowing they are together somehow may make it easier to accept, but still leaves an empty feeling for us all.
