Erika Grude, affectionately known as Omi, peacefully passed away on September 21st, 2023, with her daughter by her side. Born on May 4th, 1947, Erika left behind a lasting impact on her children David and Sylvia, her granddaughter Jiya, sister Monika, and a wide circle of friends and extended family. While she spent her childhood in Germany, Erika made Canada her home during her adult years, residing in various cities such as Regina and Victoria. Throughout her life, she spread love, laughter, and positive change, as she embraced people from all walks of life with her caring disposition. Erika’s playful spirit never faded, leaving a lasting impression on those fortunate enough to cross her path.

Fondly remembering Omi/Mom, her loved ones bid her goodbye, knowing that her spirit will be forever present. The quote, “See you everywhere,” encapsulates the sense that Erika’s influence and essence will continue to be felt in the hearts of those she touched.

Instead of flowers or gifts, the family requests donations to be made to Our Place in Victoria, BC, or your local Red Cross, in memory of Erika. Additionally, if possible, a blood donation would be greatly appreciated, as it aligns with her compassionate nature and willingness to help others in need. This gesture ensures that Erika’s legacy of kindness and generosity continues to have a tangible impact on the community.
