Lolita Brietzke was born in Elnora, Alberta and was raised in the countryside of Alberta.
Lolita is survived by her sons, Paul, Eric and Mikel as well as her siblings Tex, Rocky, Margo and Sonya and loving grandchildren are Josh, Elecia, Ethan, Dax, Dana, Ella, Lexus, Michelle, Phoebe, and Dayton.
From the beginning of her life until she relocated to BC, she studied nursing and worked the front lines as an LPN. During this time, she raised three (3) boys, Paul Eric and Mikel. She continued her studies to become an RN in BC for several years before returning to Alberta and settling into the farm life where she resumed nursing at the Westlock Continuing Care and later in Radway, Alberta.
First and foremost, Lolita was a dedicated mother. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them; she especially loved her role as a Grandmother.Family meant everything to her. She loved and cherished her Mother and Father, children, brothers and sisters as well as her nephews, nieces, grandchildren and, of course cousins (both near and far) that loved and held her near and dear.
Her door was always open for those who were in need. She helped many young soles to find their way along the path of life.
Animals who were wounded or without a home could always find shelter at her farm.
Lolita enjoyed the farm life and loved all her animals, especially her horses but, most of all, her love for the country and animals.
Lolita will always be remembered as the one person who would always spoke her mind and tell you what she thought, as unfiltered as it might be sometimes. Everyone who remembers her would tell you that she would say the things everyone else was thinking, regardless of the consequence or repercussions.
The people she worked with became her extended/chosen family. Her co-workers would often comment on how honest she was. Her words were direct, punctual and to the point. You never left a conversation with her asking “what did she mean by that”??
Lolita will always be loved, and greatly missed, by all.
Till we meet again on the other side Lolita, safe journeys and always know, we love you!!
