DeDood, Hannalore

May 23, 1934 – August 17, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Hannelore de Dood. She was born in Cologne, Germany in 1934 and passed peacefully with her family by her side on August 17, 2021. She described her life as difficult but interesting and said she overcame many challenges. She is survived by her daughter Heike, grandchildren Dave (Abby), Cheryl (Fred) and Darcy (Trissteen) and five great children. 

The Celebration of Life has been CANCELLED for now due to COVID. 


  1. My condolences to Hannas family. I enjoyed her immensely, especially when it came to German Lessons in the Piccadilly coffee shop. Great Times! I am missing her. Ella Hoskins

  2. Heike so sorry for your loss, it is very difficult to lose your mother. I am sure you will miss her dearly. My thoughts are with you at this time.

  3. Heike so sorry to hear about your mom, know you will miss her greatly, she was a special person in my life
    she always spoke so highly of you and your family, she loved you very much, so sorry the canceling of the
    celebration of her life at the Elks, it would have been a celebration for sure, she will be missed by all, but her
    spirit will remain part of each of us who’s lives she has touched , God give you peace and comfort I pray at this

  4. Heike,
    I was so shocked to have read of your moms passing. I guess for me, she never aged. She was just…Hanne. Starting over 30 years ago over Tupperware our friendship began. I always loved to run into her. We would have quick but deep conversations that always had a chuckle. I was always touched by how she would inquire about my family. She was a wonderful mentor and it was such a pleasure to have her in my life. She will be deeply missed. I am sorry that we can’t get together at this time to celebrate her life for your family to see all those whom she touched.

  5. On behalf of the Shuswap Lake Health-Care Auxiliary, I offer our sincere condolences on the passing of your mother. As soon as your mom joined the Auxiliary she volunteered wherever there was a need. She enjoyed working in the hospital Gift Shop where she was a “sales clerk” encouraging shoppers to buy and not browse. Even when her health didn’t allow your mom to be actively involved, she worked behind the scene making gift tags for our annual Christmas Gift Wrap. I had many conversations with her, but she was a “force not to be reckoned with.” She loved her flowers and I have several geraniums which your mom gave me so they are special to me. We will miss her greatly.

  6. What a lovely lady. I met her when I joined the Hospital Auxiliary and she was so welcoming. She helped where ever she could. She will be dearly missed. I can’t attend on Sunday but will be there in spirit.

  7. Hi Heike, I was so surprised to hear about your mom yesterday. She died on my mom’s birthday. She was mom’s best friend and like a sister in the family. I truly loved her and always enjoyed talking to her. She never wasted words and if she had a question or concern she got to it right away. She use to joke about this, and how since she was part of the family she could ask us anything. I learned a lot about friendship from your mom and mine. They always remained close even if they were apart for some time. Your mom has comforted me through the slow and painful decline of my mom through Alzheimer’s. My mom Elsie is still in Bastion. Hanne has been loyally visiting her and calling me to get updates regularly. I sit here missing them both as my mom is really gone too. Bless you and your mom. So sorry I wasn’t able to see her because of covid.

  8. Dear Heike,
    So sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. It was always fun to talk with her–she was so full of life. I’ll miss running into her and sharing various views. I treasured that she knew my Mom and spoke lovingly of her. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  9. I am so sorry to hear this Heike. I enjoyed your visits to my program with your sweet mom. So sorry for your loss❤

  10. My sympathies to you, Heike – and to your family members. Knowing Hanna was a special joy! She was an understanding friend who always had time to talk and I enjoyed her perspective on so many topics. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to know Hanna and work with her. Her kind and friendly ways will be missed by many. Hugs to you all. Glenna

  11. So sorry to hear of the passing of Hanna, she was a lovely lady. My condolences to her family.
    Candace Denault and Family

  12. I am so sorry to learn that I shall not be able to run into Hanna from time to time.We have known each other for a long time, as I knew Hanna and the family from Hillcrest school days . My husband Lance and Hanna also shared a permanent joke,about whipped cream (schlakenhalse,…my phonetic spelling) everytime they met. You will miss her but she is at rest now,something she really deserves. God bless and keep you all safe and well.

  13. Heike. I am so sorry for your loss. I have always enjoyed your Mom, and we would often chat when we saw each other at Picadilly Terrace. She was always so kind and caring.
    ( I know where you get it from). She will be missed! I will be thinking about you during this difficult time. Take care, Love Tracy.
