Bianca Cornelia Neidhardt (Marianne)

July 17, 1956 - October 20, 2022


Bianca Cornelia Marianne Neidhardt, 66 years old, passed away peacefully at home on October 20, 2022.  Bianca was born in Wuppertal, Germany on July 17, 1956, and emigrated to Canada in the early 1990s, taking up residence in Nakusp, BC.  She worked as a technical translator for over 35 years, translating French and English into German for legal, commercial and technical clients.  Coupled with the profession that she loved was her passion for the outdoors.  She loved to swim, kayak, canoe, camp, snowshoe and hike.  She sought adventure in life and loved to share good times with friends.  She marked and celebrated life’s milestones and was loved and admired by many.  She was an organized, motivated and resourceful person and applied these strengths to her volunteer work over the years, heading a local group of the Association des Francophones des Kootenay Ouest, servicing on the boards for the Nakusp Music Fest, the Nakusp Tai Chi ground and the Nakusp and Area Community Trails Society.  She was an active, long time member of the Naksup Voyageur Paddling Club.

Bianca is survived by and was the beloved partner of Hans-Joachim, her best friend and love of her life.  Also left to mourn her loss are her sisters Christine, Suzanna and Sumile, her niece Marlee and nephews Gavin and Rian.  The family would like to express sincere thanks for the help and compassionate care given by the medical team assisting Bianca at the Arrow Lakes Hospital, Nakusp, BC in the last few months of her life.  A private family service will be held in 2023.  Scattering of the ashes will take place in the summer of 2023 over the Arrow Lakes from the voyageur canoe in which she loved to paddle.  In lieu of flowers, friends can make donations in Bianca’s name to the Nakusp Food Bank, one of the charities she supported.  And, in Bianca’s memory, live today in joy and happiness.
