DEWITZ, Clara Anna (Pfoh)



Clara Anna Dewitz (Pfoh)

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and wife Clara Anna Dewitz (Pfoh), who passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family at the Barrhead Health Care Centre. Clara was born in Fairview AB September 20, 1938, and passed away November 15, 2022, in her 84th year.

She is survived by her family and loving husband of 63 years Ulrich (Bill) Dewitz, 8 children; Linda Dewitz Edmonton AB, Anita Dewitz Grande Prairie AB, Gord (Colette) Dewitz Devon AB, Jacqueline Dewitz Barrhead AB, Ron (Diane) Dewitz Millet AB, Kelly Dewitz Spruce Grove AB, Lorne (Cherie) Dewitz Barrhead AB, Donald Dewitz Cardiff AB.

An adored Grandma by her 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

She is survived by her brother Alphonse Pfoh and sister Elizabeth Luken.

Clara is predeceased by her parents Eva and Michael Pfoh, sister Margarette Bland, brother-in-law Henry Luken and sister-in-law Martha Pfoh.

Some of her many enjoyments besides spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren was her love of music and dancing. Saturday nights meant Bill and Clara had the opportunity to go dancing at the local cabaret. One of her other favorite pastimes was baking and experimenting with her recipes, which brought a welcome diversion from milking cows on the family dairy farm.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
