<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness the family of Sigrid Inkster, wife, mother and grandmother announce her passing. <br /> <br />Sigrid was born in Germany and at age 13 immigrated with her parents and her brother Edward to Canada where they lived on a farm near Wembley, Alberta. Sigrid attended a 1 room school in Dimsdale Alberta and despite speaking no English, was able, with hard work and perseverance, to enter the education faculty at the University of Alberta. <br /> <br />Sigrid married Norman Inkster in 1962 and continued to teach in Grande Prairie, Edmonton, Montreal, Come By Chance, Fort McMurray and Sherwood Park where they lived and worked. Sigrid was a fabulous hostess and welcomed family, friends and visitors from around the world into her home. She was a great cook, jam maker, gardener and loved to knit. She also remained active with her bowling group and exercise class. She enjoyed travelling which took her to Japan, Europe, Russia and even Tuktoyaktuk. Sigrid worked alongside Norm as they built their cabin near Sherwood Park where she continued to be a great hostess. Sigrid&rsquo;s greatest sources of pride were her children Greg (Ingrid), Michael (Julie), Nancy (Murray), and her 8 grandchildren who all called her gram. Sigrid is survived by her husband Norm, her family and 5 brothers, Edward (Evelyn) , Manfred (Ann) , Bernie (Ann) , Harry (Ann) and Henry. <br /> <br />In lieu flowers donation may be made to the Cross Cancer Institute. <br /></div>
