Sigrid Goobie passed away on August 1, 2023 at age 93. She was predeceased by her parents, brother Egon Unger and husband John Goobie.

Siggi was born in Berlin, Germany.  Siggi emigrated to England in her twenties and came to Canada a few years later, settling in Winnipeg where she worked alongside her brother Egon at Harco Electronics. She met John Goobie and they eventually moved to BC, building their dream home on Mayne Island.

Siggi was an avid gardener and skilled in knitting, and always had a table at the local market, selling her homemade goods and knitted stuffed toys. She always enjoyed watching the birds and flowers in her yard.

She is survived by her niece Hazel Scharer (Tim) and great nephews Josh and Tyler.

A tremendous thank you is sent to Kathy Barber for her assistance and friendship, especially throughout Siggi’s declining years. Also thanks to all nearby neighbors and everyone at the Mayne Island Medical Clinic for their ongoing help.

Siggi will be buried at St Mary Magdalene Cemetery. As per Siggi’s wishes, no services are scheduled.
