SCHUTZ, Helene (nee Deschner)

July 27, 1939 – August 18, 2012

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Helene, after a long battle with ovarian cancer, on Saturday, August 18, 2012 at the age of 73 years.

Helene was born in Yugoslavia and immigrated to Canada at 13 years of age. On September 29, 1956, she married the love of her life, Karlheinz, and together they started to build a beautiful life and family. Helene was well known throughout the hospitality industry and received the prestigious “White Hatter Award”. She was always the consummate hostess and entertainer. Throughout her life, Helene had many opportunities to show her amazing strength and determination, which was evident in her love of family, friends and particularly children. She had a generous heart and was known for always being there for anyone in crisis. A traveler by spirit, she saw as much of the world as possible with her husband by her side.

Helene will live on in the hearts of her numerous loving family members and friends, and especially in the hearts of her best friend and husband of 56 years, Karlheinz; her two daughters Lorraine (Peter) Hodgkinson, and Sandra (Vyse) Ashby; and her four grandchildren, Bryce, Graeme, Jenna and Sean.

A funeral service will be held at McInnis and Holloway – Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road SE) on Thursday, August 23, 2012 at 2:30pm. Cremation to follow. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Our sincere thanks goes out to Dr. Ghatge at the Tom Baker, the Palliative Care Team and Dr. Withers for all the care and support they provided.

Offer Condolence for the family of SCHUTZ, Helene (nee Deschner)
