Dorlich, Helga Elisabeth Luise
August 23, 1937 – January 2, 2015
Helga peacefully passed away on Friday, January 2, 2015 at the age of 77, after struggling with Dementia Alzheimer’s for many years.
Helga was predeceased by her husband of 42 years, Henry in 2003.
Helga was a beautiful, kind-hearted, strong and hardworking mother and grandmother who will be forever remembered by her children, Angie and Brian and her grandchildren Amber and Austin.
Helga was born in Essen, Germany and immigrated to Canada. In her early 20’s she worked for Lufthansa, she then married and had children. After lovingly raising her children for many years she went back to work for the Edmonton School Board. On the side she also volunteered her services as a German / English translator.
Helga lived life to the fullest. She was a vibrant woman who enjoyed gardening, swimming, the great out-doors, playing the piano and traveling. She will always be remembered for her home-made meals, pickling ability, black forest cakes, pflaume kuchen and tortes.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the wonderfully caring and compassionate staff at the South Terrace Long Term Care Facility in South Edmonton.
