Tribute

Passmann: Emmy Mary – passed away peacefully in Cowichan District Hospital on July 20 after a brief illness. Predeceased by her father Fred and mother Emmy. She is survived by many cousins most of whom live on Vancouver Island. Emmy was born in Comox, B.C. on June 19, 1929 to parents Fred and Emmy Passmann. Emmy and her parents lived in Camp Three in the Black Creek area. Her father worked for the Comox Logging and Railway Company. Her family moved to Ladysmith when she was seven years old. They resided on High Street until they moved to Roland Road. Fred Passmann became a commercial cod fisherman for the rest of his life. His daughter Emmy chose a career as a bookkeeper. She worked both in Ladysmith and Nanaimo. She loved to travel and all her vacation time was spent traveling around the world. She took many bus tours later in life.
Upon retirement she took it upon herself to use her bookkeeping skills to help friends dealing with estate and tax preparations as well as to provide transportation for friends when needing it. Her hobbies included swimming, gardening, playing card games and really enjoyed playing crib as said she had good luck in drawing good cards. She spent her last five months at the Lodge on fourth and the residents and staff all describes her as a person who was very caring and a good friend. She kept telling staff she did not want to be a bother to them. Emmy was a member of the Native Daughters lodge for many years and considered those members as some of her best friends. She was a pillar of the neighborhood and will be sadly missed. She was able to bridge the generation gap and she was able to be a friend to the young people in the neighborhood.
At Emmy’s request, there be no funeral service held for her but it is planned to announce a celebration of life for Emmy in the future. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com
