Ella Rempel October 25, 1913 ~ August 8, 2014.

We are sad to announce the passing of our dearest Mother, Nana, Grandmother, Ella Rempel at the age of almost 101.

A positive lady who never complained or asked for anything, Ella was truly an inspiration to our whole family and will be sorely missed by all.

Born in Russia to Jacob and Dorothy Marten, she was adopted by the Epp family at age of 3 and immigrated to Canada with the family in 1926, eventually settling in Yarrow, BC.

Cognitive to the end, Mom passed away in Surrey Memorial Hospital after a brief illness succumbing to pneumonia.

We are comforted she is now in the hands of the Lord, and joins her husband Jack (1955), daughter Heidi (1993) and son Robert (2007).

She is survived by her devoted daughters, Eleanor and Jake Wiebe, Linda and Robert Pearson and daughter- in-law Bev Rempel, as well as 11 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandchild.

A special thanks to the wonderful staff at Fleetwood Place, who took exceptional care of Mom the last couple of years. Also we would like to acknowledge the compassionate care provided by Dr. Wadge.

You are invited to a celebration of Mom's life on Thursday, August 14th at 7 PM, at Bethel Mennonite Church on 24687 - 56th Ave, Langley.
