We are sad to announce that after health complications due to hypertension and blood clots Gitta Mader passed peacefully on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at the age of 74 years. Gitta was born on March 15th, 1946 in Apenburg, Germany to Berthold and Margareta Mader. Her family emigrated to Canada in 1952 and settled in the west Jasper Place neighbourhood. She graduated in 1964 and then attended NAIT in the very first class for Dental Mechanics (Denturist). After graduation she joined a practice in the Old Strathcona neighbourhood where she apprenticed with Walter (Dury) Armstrong, until she received her provincial license. They were associates and friends, working together until he passed away in 1994. In 1997, Gitta merged practices with fellow denturist, Dwayne Pasnak. They developed a professional relationship and friendship, that lasted over 24 years. She ran her practice for a total of 53 years, until December of last year. Gitta also worked in the casino industry for over 30 years, developing many long-lasting friendships with her coworkers. Gitta was a very skilled photographer and she gifted her family with photos from all of our special events. She loved to travel, especially to her condo in Hawaii, and many of her family & friends appreciated great vacations with her. Gitta will be fondly remembered by her many friends, patients and family.
