"KOC" 2003 Obituary


KOCH o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-04-12 published
SMITHSON, Minna Marion (née RUMPEL)
In Kitchener, on Thursday, April 10, 2003. Born August 14, 1912, Minna was in her 91st year. She and her parents, Walter George RUMPEL and Marion Louise KOCH had all been born in old Berlin (Kitchener). After all these years, Minna has finally gone dancing with Jake, her best friend, companion and husband John Robertson SMITHSON who died 41 years ago in Kitchener. She will always be fondly remembered as a loving mother of Sydney Ann SMITHSON of Cambridge and John Thomas SMITHSON and his wife Elly of Vancouver, British Columbia; as a devoted sister of John Walter RUMPEL of Kitchener; as an enthusiastic aunt of David John RUMPEL and wife Renie of Waterloo, Reverend Sidney SMITHSON and his wife Elizabeth of London, Mary SMITHSON of Oakville; as a loving aunt to several nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews in Ontario and British Columbia. For many years, Minna had been a teacher in the Kitchener schools and since the death of her husband had been a member of Saint John's Anglican Church. The family wishes to extend special thanks to her companions and Friends that have cared for her over the last years at her home and also to her nurses in The Frank and Glady Voisin Intensive Care Unit/Coronary Care Unit, Saint Mary's General Hospital, Kitchener. The family will receive Friends at the Ratz- Bechtel Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 621 King Street West, Kitchener, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Sunday. Funeral services with family and Friends will be conducted at The Church of Saint John The Evangelist, 23 Water Street North, Kitchener at 11 a.m. on Monday with Reverend Sid SMITHSON and Archdeacon Neil CARVER officiating. As expressions of sympathy, the family would appreciate donations to the Saint John The Evangelist Anglican Church Building Fund or to the charity of your choice.
