Obituary of Henrike Karla Henning
After a very short but very brave battle with cancer, Henrike went to peacefully rest on Wednesday, January 10, 2024.
Mom emigrated to Canada from Germany with her then husband Georg in 1968.
She leaves to mourn her son Bernd and his partner Nic. Grandchildren Kayla Henning, Matthew Henning (Madeline), Georg and Flo of Saskatoon, her sister Marlit (Klaus) in Germany, Nic’s children Danic, Claudie and Kenzi, and many extended family members.
Mom cultivated many unique friendships over her 47 years living in Thompson. Having worked as a security guard for the Vale (INCO) mine site, mostly as the scale attendant allowed her to meet a vast many people.
She will be fondly remembered as the staunch gate keeper that she was.
Mom, you helped make me the person I am today. I wouldn’t be who I am without your influence. Watching you these past two and a half months has been hard, but it reminded me how strong and wonderful a person you truly are. You will be missed.
As per her wishes, cremation has taken place, no service will be held.
Many hugs and thank you to the staff at the Ste. Anne Hospital. In the short time with her you showed so much caring and compassion. You will never know how grateful we all are that she was in your care. Thank you.
