Irmgard Barbara Berrang (Kent) was born 1928, and grew up in a small German town. She met a Canadian Airman (Wm) Harvey Kent. They were married in 1957. In 1959 their first child Edward was born and the family moved back to Canada. Her daughters Laurie and Caroline were born a few years later.
The family settled in Quesnel in 1981. Irmgard’s greatest joy was in caring for her grandsons Travis and Tyler. Harvey ran a close third. When Harvey passed away in 1998, she devoted her life to her grandsons and her beloved “Lady”.
Irmgard had a loving and caring spirit that combined with fortitude and independence made her a joy (and sometimes an aggravation) to be around. It’s unbearable at this time to think how much she will be missed, however anyone that knew her knows not to sit around being sad because Irmgard certainly wouldn’t.
So get up and start singing while you work because that’s what she would do. Live! Love! Laugh!
Tea for Irmgard will be held on Saturday August 22, 2009 from 1 pm to 5 pm at #4 950 Anderson Drive, Quesnel.
