Herta Link of Medicine Hat passed away on Wednesday, September 27, 2023 at the age of 93 years, beloved wife of the late Waldemar Link. She also leaves to cherish her memory three children, Roy Link, Monica (Bob) Sanderson, and Beverly Link; four grandchildren, Michelle Sanderson (Francois), Jennifer (Andrew) Boyle, Sofie Link, and Stefan Link; five great grandchildren, Chloe (Kahden), Regena, Declan, Alex, and Elliot; two brothers, Gus (Joyce) Leis, and Adolf (Bonnie) Leis as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Gustav and Emilie Leis; her husband, Waldemar Link; her son, Fred Link and two brothers, Dieter Leis and Emil Leis. Our dearly beloved Mom took her last breath on earth, Wednesday, September 27, 2023. Her departure was very peaceful, with family by her side. Herta was born September 4, 1930 in Poland. On January 19,1945 during WWII, Herta along with family had to flee from their home to northern Germany; where they lived until 1950, in what had been a War prison Camp. In 1950 Herta immigrated to Canada, and in 1951 she married Waldemar, in Toronto. Together they built their life, worked very hard, and had their family. She was a member of her Church for many years which she so loved, as well as singing in the German Choir and being a part of the Frauenverein. Herta loved her family very much and it gave her great joy and happiness whenever there were family gatherings, especially when the Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren entered the picture. She was an early morning swimmer for many years which was just as much about the friendships that she developed at the pool. She was an excellent seamstress, knitter, crocheter, embroiderer, baker, and cook. Herta loved to travel, and was always open to having fun and new adventures. She was a very kind, gentle loving beautiful soul with a great sense of humor, wit and wisdom. Herta had a strong, abiding, enduring, and unshakeable faith in God, which sustained her all her life, no matter how extreme, dire and adverse the situation or circumstance was. Family and friends who wish to pay their respects may do so Wednesday, October 4, 2023 at the PATTISON FUNERAL HOME & CELEBRATION OF LIFE CENTRE from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. as well as one hour prior to the service.
