Wanda Adele Lapke

September 18, 1922 - April 25, 2011


Born on Sept. 18th, 1922 in Kaupichken-Wilkowishken, Lithuania, passed away peacefully at Mountain Lake Seniors home in Nelson, BC on April 25th, 2011.
She will be cherished and remembered by her boyfriend of 15 years, Peter Planiden, and his loving family; her daughter Brigitte Lapke of Germany; four grandchildren Christopher, Jacy, Elena and Sabina; and seven great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Johannes Lapke, and daughters Rosemarie Demes and Lisa Schindel.
A sweet “Oma”, mother, sister, wife and girlfriend, Wanda immigrated to Canada from Germany in the early 1980’s.
She made a warm and welcoming home for her friends and family in Nelson and was an active member of the senior’s community there. She was always a gracious friend and skilled hostess to her guests. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Mountain Lake for their loving care of Wanda.
