Erma Kampers (née Brubacher)

July 6, 2022


On her own terms, with dignity and grace, at University Hospital, London, on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, Erma Kampers, in her 79th year surrounded by love. Beloved wife of the late Ted Kampers (2012). Loving Step-Mom to Hugh Kampers (Marg), Joe Kampers (Linda), and Wilma Weisz (Joel). Adored Oma to Natasha, Cailyn, Joel, Josh, Shelby, Brandon, Chris, Catharina, and Jack.  Dear Oma-Great to Charlie, Jaedyn, Chance, Chase, Eugene, Grayson, Easton, and Clara. Dear sister to Loretta (Aaron) Martin, Floyd (Martha) Brubacher, Paul (Carol) Brubacher, Lavern (Margaret) Brubacher, Naomi (Don) Stoesz, Leroy (Marlene) Brubacher, and brother-in-law Orrie Wigle.  Predeceased by her parents Daniel and Amanda (Wideman) Brubacher, and her sister Alma Wigle. Erma was an incredibly loving person who dedicated her life to helping others and being a Nurse put her in a position to fulfill that dream.  The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the compassion shown by the LHSC ICU team during the entirety of Erma’s stay there.   Knowing Erma had been a nurse made them feel as though they understood her better and instantly felt a bond with her.  She will be missed by so many.

With sympathy to all who will greatly miss Erma! She was a beam of light to so many. She was the one who helped my mother deliver my baby sister. As I asked her input for memories during that time she shared how God had a hand in her preparedness for this event. Erma was pumping gas at her father's garage for the pastor from the Hawkesville Mennonite Church. He asked her why she wasn't taking the St. John's Ambulance course at the school? She stopped pumping gas, changed her dress and went. That was the winter prior to her coming to help our family. This was how Erma knew how to deliver a baby! I remember at bedtime instead of going to bed to sleep my sister Dorothy and I would hop into bed with Erma for giggles and laughter before crawling back into our bed to go to sleep! I wish I could have joined you in saying good-bye. I received the news too late! It was a beautiful service! May God comfort you all as you proceed your journey without her! With thoughts and prayers Bea

To the Kampers & Brubacher Families. Our family got to know Erma when Noah Romer- about 4 yrs of age-and his family moved in next door. We had lots of conversations over the years and neighbours often stopped in for a visit when Erma & Noah were outside. Erma shared stories of her family and how blessed she was to be part of your lives. Erma was a guest at our daughter’s wedding 3 years ago on July 6th. We will not forget her loving words, patience and positive outlook on life. My deepest sympathy Sharanne MacDonald

Erma was a lovely, kind soul who made everything out of life. She was a great support to my wife Lori over many years offering emotional, physical support and wise words at times, she blessed many people in her life journey. May there be peace and blessings upon all her family
