Ernst was born on August 28, 1935 in Stutthof, Germany to parents Berta Mohring (nee Wendt) and Heinrich Mohring. Ernst was 1 of 9 children and their father Heinrich died at the age of 45 resulting in Ernst having to start working a full time job at the tender age of 13 to help support the family. Ernst met his wife Ursula when he was 21 and they were married for 67 years. Ernst was a glazier by trade and when they immigrated to Canada in 1965 he started working for Bullas Glass not being able to speak a word in English and then ended his career with Kitchener Glass in 1997. Ernst loved to make stained glass art and if you were part of Ernst’s life, you would have received one of his creations. When Ursula received the news of her husband’s passing, she wanted to say that Ernst was a good man to those in his life and even to strangers and he had worked very hard his whole life and was always a very helpful man who never procrastinated.
Beloved husband and best friend of Ursula (nee Villinger) whom were married on September 15, 1956. Loving & cherished father of Johanna and Nancy Mohring (Paul Amaley) Proud Opa of Konrad, Victor and Delbert. Dear Brother of Peter and Heidi.
