It is with great sadness that the family of Gaby (Gabrielle) Voegeli-Burgle announces her passing after an extended and hard fought battle with brain cancer, on August 15th, 2013.
Gaby is lovingly remembered by her beloved husband Hans: daughters; Charlotte (Ian), Dominique (Phil), Natalie (Daniel): son; Christophe (Jill); as well as her sisters; Nicole (children) in England and Danielle: and her brother: Christian with family in Switzerland.
Gaby was predeceased by her parents Odile and George Burgle and sister Marianne, all in Switzerland.
The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the Cross Cancer Institute (Dr. D. Fulton and Dr. A. Murtha) and to the entire staff and management of the Millwoods Shepherd’s Care for their extraordinary care and great compassion. A very special thank you also to Dr. Paul Grewal for his outstanding and caring treatment.
We also would like to thank her many friends for their compassion, encouragement and friendship.
A Funeral Mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Parish, 13 Brower Dr. Sherwood Park, AB on Thursday, August 22nd, 2013, at 11:00 a.m.
Instead of a luncheon following the service, there will be a Celebration of Life to be announced at a later date.
Family, friends and everybody who knew Gaby are welcome to attend this special day of remembrance.
In lieu of flowers and in Gaby’s memory, donations may be made to the Shepherd’s Care Foundation, 6620-28th Ave, Edmonton, AB, T6K 2R1, www.shepherds.org or the charity of your choice.
