Petra Peiskar

Nov. 3, 1952 – Oct. 2, 2008

It’s with great sadness we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of a wonderful woman and mother. Petra has left behind two adoring daughters, Nikaya (Brian) and Natasha. David Wensel, her loving companion, their dogs, Boomer and Tilly and Calvin the cat. She is survived by her mother, brother, sister and many other family and friends who reside in her homeland of Europe.

Petra originally came to Canada and lived with the father of her two daughters, Bernd Peiskar, for many years. She had spent the past five years in Victoria with David while the girls visited frequently from the mainland.

In lieu of flowers please make donations in her name to BC SPCA Wild Arc.

Please visit the family’s memorial site and guest book at www.personalalternative.com. Petra will be sorely missed. She brought joy to others with her passion, loving nature and free-spirit.
