SEUFERT, Marlies May 22, 1933 – October 21, 2012 It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our mother Marlies, age 79 years, at Carewest Garrison Green in Calgary. Marlies leaves to mourn, her husband Harold (Cy) Seufert of 53 years and her daughters Dr. Andrea Seufert (Greg Lutz) and Janet Seufert RN (Bruce Mattocks). She was predeceased by her brother Hans Cruse. Marlies was born to Alwine and Otto Duwe in Hofer, Germany. While working at the Canadian Armed Forces Base in Soest Germany, she met her future husband and subsequently immigrated to Canada in 1960 with her new husband and first born, settling in Calgary. Marlies worked her entire life in the service industry, retiring from the Calgary Tower as the Assistant Dining Room Manager in 1988 due to health concerns. Our mother enjoyed cooking, baking, gardening, painting, playing card games, bingo, betting the horses and above all spending quality time with her beloved family and pets. Marlies was a complex, strong, opinionated, hard-working and most of all generous woman. Time and illness robbed our mother of her beauty, vitality, personality, mobility, strength and humor but she was always our beloved mother. She was an amazing woman with an equally amazing life story to tell. Mom taught us everything we needed to know to succeed in life and we will be eternally grateful. No one will ever love or be as proud of her two daughters as our mother was of us; we will always love and remember you Mom. Memorial tributes may be made to the MEOW Foundation Box 65024, RPO North Hill Calgary, AB T2N 4T6 or your favorite charity. At the request of the family, there will not be a funeral service but instead a celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
