December 30, 1946 - October 31, 2015
With sadness we announce the passing of Ingrid Jenke on Saturday, October 31, 2015 after a valiant battle with cancer. She defied everyone’s prognosis for many years. We extend profound gratitude to all the wonderful doctors and care providers over the years who coordinated, directed or counselled her ongoing treatment regimen. Ingrid is survived by her beloved husband Vincent Kimura and her loving daughters Deanna (Gerry) Rooke and Kirsten Hintze (Michael Johanson). She is also survived by her brothers Heiner (Donna) and Alan (nieces Krista and Alexandra). She was predeceased by her parents Heinz and Ruth Jenke. Ingrid was a vibrant and positive spirit. She greeted everyone with genuineness and authenticity. To her, life was all about relationships. Relationships not only with those close but with complete strangers as well. Ingrid treated both with pure heart and genuine regard. Her life philosophy was directed by two pledges: Honour your soul and always come from love. This was Ingrid to the core. We would like to thank the staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and at the High River General Hospital for their excellent care over the years. Special thanks to Dr. Finnegan and the third floor nurses who chartered the final leg of her journey. They were simply exceptional. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre (www.cancer.ca) or the High River Hospital Foundation (560 8th Ave. SW, High River, T1V 1B3). A Celebration of Ingrid’s Life will be held at the Highwood Golf & Country Club in High River on Friday, November 13 at 2:00 p.m. To send condolences and view Ingrid’s Tribute Page please visit www.lylereeves.com . Caring for the family is Lyle Reeves Funerals of High River (403.652.4242).
