July 2, 1933 ~ November 17, 2021 (age 88)


Ellen Emma Maria Schuett  

July 02 1931 - November 17 2021


Ellen will be missed by her husband Horst of 62 years, son; Hartwig (Uta) along with granddaughters; Meret and Mailin, son Carsten (Andrea) along with grandsons; Timothy and Ronnie (Camilla), granddaughter Jennifer, and great granddaughters; Olivia, Ariel and Scarlett.

Ellen was predeceased by her parents Julius and Maria Osterhoff, and her brothers Werner and Uwe.

Ellen was born in Cleverbrück Germany on July 2, 1931. After she married Horst, the two built up their own business in establishing a hotel close to Travemünde at the Baltic Sea.  After selling their business, they immigrated to Canada in 1987 and farmed in the Montney area.

Ellen enjoyed the wildlife around her and was an avid birdwatcher. Her vegetable garden and abundance of flowerbeds gave her great joy. Cooking, baking, square dancing and having the neighbors and friends over for playing cards fulfilled her together with her love for traveling and the arts.

In 2014, because of health reasons they sold their farm and moved into Fort St. John where she spent her time until her passing. 

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy can be made in memory of Ellen to the Fort St. John Historical Society - Click Here to donate. Ellen took great interest in the history of the Peace and would take time to participate in annual meetings.
