In loving memory
Renate Maria ZEININGER
1947 – 2012
Renate Zeininger passed away peacefully at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital on Monday, Sept. 3, 2012 after a brave struggle with cancer. She was 65 years of age. Born in Beratzhausen, Germany on May 13, 1947, Renate came to Canada and settled here in the late 1960’s. She held a successful career in banking, serving in a supervisory capacity. In 1991, Renate moved to East Blackpool, B.C., where she spent the remainder of her life.
Mourning Renate’s passing are her lifelong companion, Lorenz Ponath of East Blackpool; sister Doris Eisbrenner of Kitchener, ON, brother Johann (Renate) Zeininger of Beratzhausen, Germany; nieces Elke (Steven) McLellan and Rita Eisbrenner; nephew Simon Zeininger, great niece Erin McLellan and great nephew Kyle McLellan, plus many good friends. Renate was predeceased by her parents, Ludwig and Helene Zeininger, and by her brother, Kurt Zeininger.
Renate was an intelligent woman with a caring heart. She was very generous and helpful; if you needed help, Renate was there for you. She loved nature and the quiet rural lifestyle of the North Thompson Valley.
