at the age of 94 years

Susie Kleiner was born July 13, 1926 in Wuppertal, Barmen, German and passed away on May 8, 2021 in Salmon Arm, BC.

Her eventful life was complimented by many trades she learned from an early age.  She has been an excellent upholsterer and a very good seamstress, always with a good eye for designing.

Susie was predeceased by her husband Alfred Kleiner.  She will be missed by her son Udo, as well as  family and friends in Salmon Arm, White Rock and Germany.


  1. To Udo and family our sincere condolences. The Klein family remembers many wonderful special occasions at the Kleiner ‘paradise’ on Lyman Hill. Amon her many talents, Susie was also an accomplished cook who took great pride in being a welcoming hostess.
    May you rest in peace, Susie.
