Obituary of Blanca Emiliana Freiburghaus

Please share a memory of Blanca to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
August 09, 1935 – February 12th, 2011 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and best friend. Blanca passed away at home on Saturday February 12, 2011. She was a wonderful mother and a caring grandmother and will be deeply missed by her daughter Diana and son-in-law Hendrik Meekel, sons Chris, Peter, Andy and grandchildren, Karisa, Shana, Kelsey, Jordan, Jillian, Annika and Max. Blanca is also survived by her sisters, Anne Marie Lawrence, Hildegard Mullauer and brother Martin Schennach (all in Austria). She will also be missed by her many friends and the Austria Vancouver Club Melody Choir group, where she loved to sing. Blanca married Otto Freiburghaus (deceased 1993) in 1955 and moved to Ocean Falls, B.C. in 1956 from Tirol, Austria. There they began their family, and she often spoke of the happy times she had there. In 1970, the marriage ended, and in 1972 Blanca met Albert Tsumura, who became her longtime companion of 39 years, who recently passed away on October 25th, 2010. Blanca worked for many years as a Care Aid at Inglewood Private Hospital. She enjoyed her work and was always kind and giving of herself and those that needed her. Blanca will be remembered for her big heart and bright beautiful smile, that she gave to all that knew her. A celebration of life will be held at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel 11765 224th Street, in Maple Ridge on Saturday February 26th at 1:00pm. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to Dr. Michael Knight and Dr. Michael Boldt, for their kind words and wonderful care of our dear mother. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. Rest in peace dear mom. And may the love and memories you’ve left behind sustain us all, until we meet again.
