October 24, 1910 - August 17, 2017

On Thursday, August 17, 2017 Amalie (Ami) Gunhold (Berndl) passed away peacefully at Ridgeview Lodge in Kamloops at the age of 106 years. Ami was born October 24, 1910 in Munich, Germany and at the age of 19 she immigrated to Canada in January 1930 with her family to join her father who had come a year earlier. Arriving in Montreal she travelled to Lethbridge AB and later to Raymond AB. Shortly after, she relocated to Calgary and in 1957 moved to Penticton and later to Kamloops in 1998. She always enjoyed good health, the love of her family, and had many good friends and good times.
Many thanks and much appreciation to the workers and friends who attended her home care needs from High Country Health Care and took time to visit with her. And thanks also to the staff at Ridgeview Lodge whose concern and care for her well being this past year was exceptional. 
She will be lovingly remembered by her son Alf (Doña) Cook, grandchildren Cambi Cook (Nathan) Labrie and Gavin Cook, great grandchildren Logan, Amalie, Aidan and Chloe Labrie all of Kamloops; step daughters Shirley Gunhold of Calgary and Margaret (Eric) Lepoidevin of Scarborough Ontario, niece Eleanor Mahoney of Calgary and nephew Ron Neidermayer of Bisbee, Arizona. She will also be fondly remembered by her many friends that remain.
A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
