Obituary of Aurea Sanchez-Engelhardt

Peacefully, with the love of her family and caregivers, on Monday, June 29, 2020, at Lee Manor, Owen Sound.  Aurea Sanchez Engelhardt, of Owen Sound and formerly of Puebla Mexico, at the age of 87 years. Predeceased by her, husband Paul Engelhardt, of Germany. 

Loving mother of Elisabeth (Michael) Noble and Maggie Engelhardt (Kerry O’Dwyer).  Much loved Oma of Richard Smith Engelhardt, Steven Engelhardt, Joseph Smith Engelhardt, Abigail Noble, and Olivia Noble. Special Tia to her niece Bianca, sister in law Blanca and close brother Pedro.

Aurea was one of 19 siblings, who live across Canada, California and Mexico and along with her nieces and nephews she will be missed by many family members.  She treated all her family and friends with love and kindness and had a very motherly presence.  She enjoyed showing her love to her family and friends through her love of cooking; Aurea loved to cook for her guests, and offered food and hospitality to any one visiting her home.  She was an avid gardener and could be found spending hours nurturing her beloved rose garden. 

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, a private Funeral Mass will be held at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, Owen Sound, on Friday, July 3, 2020. Interment to follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Owen Sound.
