Johanna “Hanni” Eleonore Rothschild
December 8, 1921 – February 10, 2020
Hanni passed away peacefully with her family by her side on the morning of February 10, 2020. Predeceased much too long ago by beloved husband Freddie. Will be sorely missed by sons Norman and Howard and daughter in law Nora. The grandchildren Aaron (and spouse Monica), Julie (and spouse Ron), Ryan (and spouse Shannon), Ben and Ella will never forget. And perhaps too young to remember, but her great grandchildren Abi, Olivia, Briar and Maisie will be reminded by stories and pictures. As will the rest of her extended family. As a child Hanni danced and performed on the stage as an actress. She and Freddie immigrated from Germany in 1948 landing in New York then to Canada. Shortly thereafter she embarked on what was ultimately to become an extensive and prolific career as a much recognized Canadian artist exhibiting in galleries across the country. She is represented in numerous leading private and public collections across North America. Hanni was indomitable. Her spirit will live on. Funeral will be held at 11:00 AM on Tuesday February 11th at Pardes Shalom Cemetery, 10953 Dufferin St, Maple, Ontario (north of Major McKenzie). Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Wildlife Federation www.cwf-fcf.org or 1-877-599-5777.
