It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Karol Lentzen of Coleman, AB on February 8, 2019. She was 80 years of age.
Karol was born in the Netherlands on January 13, 1939. Once of age, she enlisted in the Dutch military, and after coming to Canada in 1966, she proudly served her new country as a member of Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry where she rose to the rank of Sergeant. In 2001, she relocated to the Crowsnest Pass where she remained until her passing.
Karol loved the outdoors and spent as much time as possible fishing. She also enjoyed carpentry and listening to music. As a member of the Catholic Women’s League, Karol demonstrated her commitment to her both her faith and her community. She may be gone from our eyes, but she will be forever in our hearts.
Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her sisters-in-law, Eleanor Berry, Helen Ward, Jill (John) Badzioch and Anne (Mike) Tailor; numerous nieces and nephews and extended family; her special canine companion, Peppe; as well as many friends.
She was predeceased by her wife Kathy Lentzen.
A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Parish Building Fund (PO Box 1410, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
