Noz, Karin

September 16, 1941 – December 19, 2016
at the age of 75 years

Celebration of her life will be held at The Salmon Arm Elk’s Hall on Wednesday December 28, 2016 at 2:00 pm.

It is with great sadness that the family of Karin Noz announces that their mother/Nana passed from this life on Monday December 19th, 2016 in Salmon Arm, BC.  She passed peacefully in her home surrounded by her family. 
Karin was born on September 16, 1941 to Franz and Ursula Protzek in Torgau, Germany. 
Karin is survived by her daughters Lori Petryshen (Larry) and Carol Noz and her grand-daughters,  Natalie Jobe (Rob), Adelya Crocker, Mackenzie Crocker and Emilie Petryshen.  She is also survived by one brother, Ulrich Protzek in Germany.
Karin was predeceased by her parents, brother Rolf Protzek in 2009 and sister Lori Gartner in 2015 and ex-husband Ed Noz who she remained friends with until his passing in 2005.
Karin moved to Canada to get married at the age of 17 to Adolf (Ed) Noz and went on to have two daughters, Lori in 1960 and Carol in 1962. Karin and her family moved to Uranium City in 1965 and resided there until 1981.  In 1981 Karin moved to Edmonton to manage a Sears Catalogue Outlet and in 1993 she was transferred to Salmon Arm to manage the local Sears Catalogue Outlet and within a year, both her daughters followed.  She semi-retired in 2002 and moved into Country Side Mobile Park where she spent many hours on decorating her home and landscaping her yard. She loved her neighborhood and the many friends that she made in the park for the 13 years she resided there.  In 2015 she sold her place to live in an in-law suite with her daughter, Lori and family.
Karin loved to watch her daughters curl every Tuesday night at the local curling club and her daughters and teammates will miss seeing her sitting at the window cheering them on, she was their number one fan.  Karin also loved to watch her granddaughters play soccer or ringette and she never missed a game if she could help it. Her grand-daughters were always her top priority. She was also always eager for a game of Canasta or any other card game that surrounded herself with her family and friends.  Karin loved to read books, go shopping (loved shopping), going to the movies, garage sales and was the happiest when she was caring for others.  
Karin’s family and friends will always cherish the kind, caring, selfless and genuine person that she was. She will forever be missed and loved by all.
The family would like to thank the medical, palliative, home care team and especially all the staff at the Pharmacy in Shoppers Drug Mart, that helped make Karin’s last days at home as comfortable as possible.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear of Karin’s passing. I was privileged to know her in one of her business ventures and we shared a common interest in helping those with mental health challenges/disabilities. Karin always gave so much to others and you knew her family was her number one priority. Lori and Carol (and families) I’m thinking of you and remembering your mom’s caring ways.

  2. Lori, Carol and families. We are thinking of you all as you reflect on your mom/Nana. Hope you find strength in your memories and each other. She will be fondly remembered as we too reflect . She will be missed at the curling rink. But will see her smiling face.

  3. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Karin was a very special lady and will be mussed.

  4. Lori, Carol and families our thoughts and prayers are with you. We are shocked that Karin is no longer with us. A beautiful and caring lady, baby sat our children some 55 years ago.She credited our children for teaching her the English language. We have some great memories.

  5. We are so sorry for your loss. We have nothing but great memories of your mom and Des still remembers his days with her babysitting and her missteps with the English language! Our love to all of you.
    Des and Cathy Melenka

  6. Lori, Carol and Families:
    So very, very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. Your Mom was always such a pleasant lady and definitely your #1 fan at the Curling Club. Her smiling face will be missed “behind the glass”. May she rest in peace.

    Greg Grimshaw Karen was responsible for me getting my first guitar. Something my parents would regret when her future son-in-law’s brother, Murray and I discovered Deep Purple and played until the calluses pealed back. She served me the best “eggs in a hole” I ever had. She always had a smile and a kind word to me.
    My sympathies to Lori and Carol and their families.

  12. Lori and Carrol, Sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I remember having a good time with Karin and Ed at the Friends of Berlin dances. Wish you and the kids all the best.

  13. Please accept my condolences over Karin’s passing. I met Karin through Beta Sigma Phi when I first moved to Salmon Arm. I have fond memories of Karin at the meetings, the socials and especially the weekend retreats. A positive attitude to life was a constant. She was very proud of her 2 daughters. In recent years, she was excited and delighted about the interests, abilities and successes of her granddaughters. Again my deepest sympathies. Karin will be missed.

  14. Dear Lori, Carol and families,
    Somehow we missed the very sad and unexpected news that Karin is no longer with us. We feel fortunate to have known your mom, and will always appreciate her loving care of Mary. She was a ray of sunshine who we know you are missing terribly.
    Our thoughts are with you.
    Kari
