HATZENBUHLER, Erna - Passed away peacefully at her residence surrounded by the love of her family on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at the age of 84.

Reunited with her beloved husband Nikodemus “Nick” Hatzenbuhler who predeceased her on April 30, 2015. Loving mother of Eric Hatzenbuhler (Crystal), Rita Butler (Kelly), Elizabeth Maheux (Larry) and Edward Hatzenbuhler (Laura). Loving Oma of Alex, Victoria, Kendra, Jessica (Steve), Brittany, Cory, Nicholas (Christina), Mitchell, Stewart and Joshua. Great Oma of Lucas, Anika, Aliyah and Brooklyn.

Fondly remembered by her step grandchildren/ great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family. Predeceased by her parents Otto and Pauline Haase.

Erna's faith was most important to her. She drew her strength from it each day, especially during these past few months. She was grateful to God for whatever time she had left on this earth and was a witness to her faith to all she was around.
Music, cooking and dancing were some of her favorite passions. Her greatest joy and treasure was her family, including those in Germany.

Music brought us all together. From there blossomed a great friendship with the whole family. Visits, dances, weddings, dinners have created many memories for our family. I always looked forward to visits with Erna and Nick whom always showed up when I returned to visit my parents. We feel your loss and will always cherish the time we had with Erna. She was a very special caring person. Thinking of you all through these difficult times. Chris, Barry, Thomas, Trevor and Haylea Nisbet
