Nitsche, Dieter

at the age of 85 years:

It is with sadness that the family announces the sudden death of Dieter on July 1, 2023.

Dieter was born in Berlin and immigrated to Canada in 1957. His training as a pressman in the printing industry, included employment at D.W Friesen Printers in Altona, MB and Pollard Banknote in Winnipeg and Kamloops. Dieter and his wife Verna, resided in Winnipeg but their retirement took them to Sorrento, BC.

Dieter is survived by his wife Verna of almost 59 years, sons Darrel, Dave (Sarah) and grandsons Jonah and Matthew. The family thanks The First Responders, Ambulance Personnel, RCMP, Coroners Services, Dr. J Levins and Fischer’s Funeral Services. A very special thank you to neighbours Melanie, Jodi and Don who were at the home the morning of July 1st.

A private graveside service will be held, followed by a Celebration of Life in Manitoba in October.

  1. My Deepest condolences to Verna and family . I was 18 yrs/old when I met Dieter in 1988, working at Pollard Banknote. Learned a lot from him in the Printing business and enjoyed his quirky humor he had just below the surface. Pleasure to have known him.

    RIP Dieter

  2. Your wish was granted, you died peacefully, at home, without sickness or pain.
    I will never forget you.

  3. My deepest condolence to you Verna & Family. Loved visiting with you & Dieter. Love, Julia

  4. Our deepest condolences to you Verna and family, Rest in Peace, Dieter. Hans and Inge Schricker

  5. Verna, Darrel and Dave – My heart goes out to you. Losing a spouse and parent is very difficult. As time passes, the memories will become more precious. Time also serves to increase the longing that you wish you could talk to him once more, see him once more, and give him one more hug. I am keeping you in my thoughts, and praying that you receive peace.

  6. Dieter always made me smile with his quick wit. It is a gift to pass peacefully at home. Our heartfelt condolences to Verna, Darrel and Dave.
