ELISABETH ERNA MALBURG
Elisabeth was born February 19, 1931 at the Rudolfinerhaus hospital in Vienna, Austria, daughter of Hans and Friedl Boehm. She was raised in Gloggnitz and Eisenerz, Austria.
After finishing her primary and secondary education, Elisabeth worked for a year as an au pair in New Castle, Pennsylvania; followed by another year of work in Bilbao (or San Sebastian), Spain.
On August 3, 1954, Elisabeth married Peter G. Malburg in Eisenerz, Austria, then followed him to Montreal, where Peter had a job after completing his academic years in Austria and Union College, NY.
Over the next several years, Peter's job took him and Elisabeth to Switzerland, Germany, back to Montreal, and finally to Winnipeg.
They raised three children: George, Christian and Beatrice (Trixi), who now live in Vancouver; Vienna, Austria; and Stanz, Steiermark, Austria; respectively. Elisabeth and Peter also had seven grandchildren.
Elisabeth loved gardening, books, the outdoors (she downhill skied in Austria, then cross-country in Winnipeg), but most of all, her many good friends.
Elisabeth is also survived by her loving brother, Hans Guenther, in Rhinebeck, New York, and his family.
Cremation has taken place, and there will be no public service.
Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Red Cross and/or flowers to staff at Maples Personal Care Home. We are very grateful for the loving care that she received there, just now and over the almost nine years!

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
George, Trixi and Christian, my deepest condolences on the passing of your mother. All I can say is that grief takes time to process. Be kind to yourselves and let time heal. I did get to meet your mom on a few occasions in Vancouver, once in George’s “cave” apartment on main and at a surprise birthday party for George when George didn’t know that his mom would be there. All good memories. May your mom Rest In Peace. James - Posted by: James Swank (Family Friend) on: Nov 21, 2020
To George, Christian and Trixi, my sincerest condolences. I remember so many fun filled hours playing bridge with Elisabeth and our good friends Ethel and Thora especially when we went to my cottage in Keewatin. We laughed until we cried. She was a super gardener and a gourmet cook. So many good memories. Just a wonderful person and a good friend. May she Rest In Peace. Bev Stewart - Posted by: Bev (Friend) on: Nov 21, 2020
