Obituary for Lydia Omland (Ladehoff)

Lydia  Omland (Ladehoff)
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Lydia Katharina Omland peacefully at the Bowmanville Hospital on Monday February 11, 2018 at the age of 88.

Lydia was predeceased by her husband of 50 years, Erich Omland and her brothers Harald and Heinz.

Left to cherish her memory are her son Holger and daughter in-law Birgit, grandchildren to Correne (Paul), Mike (Jessie) and Nikki (Ian) and great grandchildren Taylor, Ashton and Harper. She will be deeply missed by her long time partner and friend Gary, her sister Alita and brother Bruno , her friend of many years Edda, and many extended family and beloved friends.

Lydia was born in 1929 in the district of Dithmarschen, Germany to Willy and Elly Ladehoff. Lydia and Erich would later emigrate to Ontario, Canada in 1964 with their son Holger.

Lydia was an active member of the Creek for many year, enjoying many activities and meaningful friendships. Her moto in life was “I never give up”, and this remained true until her final day on this earth. Always resolute in the endeavours she chose, Lydia never shied away from any challenge set before her. Many will remember those days with a gentle smile.

Lydia greatly enjoyed the outdoors, whether it was a round of golf at Wilmot Creek or sipping a glass of wine and watching the golfers swing the day away. An adept green thumb, her gardens and plants were something to admire. Lydia especially loved her red geraniums and relished in their colours each year.

An avid dancer, Lydia loved to dance well into the night and even when pain slowed her, she would always be found tapping her feet and swaying to the music. She was an active member of her community and attended many events, including the exciting Friendly Fridays. Lydia was never missed in a room, always looking grand and dressed to the nines, she took great pride in her presence. She will be deeply missed and remembered fondly by all who knew her.

A Celebration of Life is planned for Thursday March 15th at the Wilmot Creek Wheelhouse at 1 p.m.
