Gerlinde Anna Langheinrich (nee URNER)

Gerlinde, 78, passed away on 1 February 2013 in Terrace, B.C. while in palliative care at Terraceview Lodge.

Gerti was born to Anna (nee Kostron) and Rudolf Urner on 10 October 1934 in Schildberg (Štíty), Czechoslovakia. She lived in Germany before settling in Northwestern B.C with her family and most of her siblings in May 1960.

Gerlinde is most known for her many years of work at Bert’s Delicatessen. It is at the Deli where she was able to do the things she loved most: share stories, laughs, and of course food.

She is predeceased by her parents; her husband (Hans Langheinrich); her sisters: Anni (Leon) Kawa and Hilda (Siegfried) Kriegl; and brothers: Rudy and Helmut Urner.

Gerlinde is survived by her Children: Gabriele (Robert) Prevost, Udo (Sandra) Langheinrich; Grandchildren: Dallas (Jose) Pacheco, Jason (Leslie) Prevost, Michael Prevost, and Joey (Tamara) Prevost; Great-grandchildren: Marina (Tanner), Ariana, & Anthony Pacheco, Payton Prevost, and Samuel & Alexander Prevost; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives including her sisters-in-law: Lynne and Gunda Urner; and the Buchele and Kluger families of Germany.

Gerlinde was cremated on 5 February 2013 at the Terrace Crematorium. As per her request, the family will be having a private ceremony to scatter a portion of her cremains at a later date.

Please join us in paying tribute to Gerti on 22 February 2013 at the Terrace Sportsplex at 11:00am.

Our family would especially like to share our heartfelt thanks to the staff at Terraceview for the care and kindness they showed our grandmother during this difficult time.
