Olive Alma Klimpke (Ludtke)

Passed on March 10, 2021

Feb. 15, 1925 – March 10, 2021     Peacefully on March 10, 2021, Olive passed away at Rosewood Lodge.

She leaves behind her three daughters Marlene, Vivian and Faye (Brent); 4 grandchildren, numerous great grandchildren and a great-great grandson.

She was predeceased by husband Fred, son-in-law Jim and grandson Robert; as well as 12 sisters and brothers.

Mom was a life member of the Ladies Auxiliary, Stonewall Branch #52. She worked for the T. Eaton Company in Winnipeg for a few years and then married Fred. She opened her home to borders on Ruby Street, while raising her family. After moving to Stonewall she opened up Stonewall Florist. She loved to bake, can pickles and you couldn’t beat her fried chicken and cinnamon buns. There was always a pot of “hair curling coffee” on the stove when friends, neighbors and grandkids visited. Mom was seldom seen without a cat on her lap and a dog at her feet. Her and Callie always loved their afternoon “catnaps”.

She loved to knit and watch curling and baseball on television, the daily crossword puzzles was a must. Playing cards for money and joking with everyone was a favorite pastime. Her long road trips consisted of picking wild flowers, berries, “bullrushes”, and “pussy willows”. Listening to all the “oldie records” especially Wilf Carter and Anne Murray always brought a smile to her face.

Thanks for the great care she received from Home Care workers, Stonewall Hospital, Teulon Care Home and Rosewood Lodge. A private family service was held on Saturday, March 13 at Immanuel Lutheran Church, with interment in the Stonewall Cemetery.

Special thanks to Pastor Mark for his visits and comforting words. Also to Ken Loehmer for his compassion. If friends so desire, donations may be made to Immanuel Lutheran Church, 2528 King Edward Street, Winnipeg or to a charity of your choice.


Faye, So sorry to read if your Moms passing, you will surely miss her. Audrey Hogg
