Margot Kathe Tietje

It is with great sadness that the Mueller family announces the sudden death of Margot Tietje nee’ Muller on April 17, 2010. She was born Sept. 10, 1921 in Quedlingburg, Germany and survived the horrors of World War II in that country. After many life challenges which included the death of her beloved son Peter and husband Ernst, she came to Canada in 1979 to join her brother’s family and mother in Salmon Arm.

To those who were fortunate enough to know her, she will always be remembered as a warm-hearted, generous, fun-loving and fiercely independent woman. She had a special love for animals and throughout her lifetime many cats, dogs, and parakeets shared her home.

She is survived by her brother Kurt Willy (Edith) Mueller, step-son Ernst Tietje Jr. and sister Helga Muller in Germany, niece Ursula (Terry) Lowrey, nephew Kurt (Adele) Mueller and their children David (Erin and son Jaxson John) and Christel. She is predeceased by son Peter, husband Ernst, mother Emma Sudekum, and grand-niece Anna Mueller Hartmier.

The family invites Margot’s friends to celebrate her life/share memories at Salmon Arm Art Gallery on Sunday April 25 2010 at 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Salmon Arm S.P.C.A., 5850 Auto Road SE, Salmon Arm, V1E 2×2 in Margot’s name.
