Rosmaria Behncke

Rosmaria Behncke

December 4, 1920 – February 3, 2013

Rosmaria Behncke was born in Schleswig, Germany on December 4, 1920. After surviving World War 2, she made her way to Austria where she regained her health. She traveled the world, experienced love and loss and came upon Saltspring Island in 1986. She built a replica of her beloved grandfathers house that she remembered fondly from her upbringing in Germany.It was in this environment that her art flourished. She was incredibly strong willed, independent and carried a magnificent sense of humor until her peaceful passing on the morning of Sunday, February 3, 2013. A special thanks to Dr. Woodley, the staff at Lady Minto Hospital, Margo and the home care team who all showed her kindness until her last breath.

Unser engel (our angel) lost but never forgotten. Love in this lifetime and the next -Trish, Ayla, Jasmin, and Meetzy. 

Service to be announced.
