DOROTHEA AGNES “DORA” KLOEPPER, beloved wife of the late Ernst Siebo of Lethbridge, passed away at Chinook Regional Hospital on Monday, June 13, 2022 at the age of 93 years.
Dora is survived by her children, Karl (Helen) Kloepper of Lethbridge, Gesine Kloepper of Calgary, Gordon (Donna) Kloepper of Nanton, Harald Kloepper (Kim Spencer) of Beaumont, Alan Kloepper (Sherry Marie Stica) of Brooks and Irene Kutzner of Kelowna, B.C., as well as 14 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
She is predeceased by her husband, Ernst, and son-in-law, Rene Kutzner.
Dora was born January 26, 1929 in Norden, Germany. She married the boy next door, Ernst, on Christmas Eve of 1948. Their love was evident to all and they embraced each other on their many journeys together.
Dora, along with her husband and two small children, moved to Rolling Hills, Alberta in 1951 to begin their new life. Together, they worked to establish a beautiful life for their family. Dora took pride in her amazing garden and provided the best meals one could ever wish for — not to mention her baking!
She loved deeply and showed her love through her generosity. She was devoted to the happiness of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends. She was also very giving of her time to her community and church.
Dora will be sadly missed and we are deeply grateful for her teachings of love, passion for life and humility. We are comforted that she is in Dad’s arms.
A Celebration of Dora’s Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. with Reverend Trevor Potter officiating.
Dora will be reunited with her beloved Ernst during a private Interment in Mountain View Cemetery.
