Obituary of Helga Hedges
HEDGES, Gisela "Helga" nee Matschke finished her journey here on Earth, at Brantford General Hospital on February 4, 2021 in her 84th year. Loving mother of Heidi Gowland (Joe) and Jody Winter (Steven).
Sadly missed by her 4 greatest treasures, her three Grandchildren and one Great Grandson, who fondly referred to her as Omi. Hollie (Stu), Jeremy (Kilee), Emily (Dallas) and Blake. Immigrating from Germany in her early 20s, she proudly made Canada her home. Her spirit was one of kindness and caring. "She was a mother, so very rare, content in her home and always there." A smile is the prettiest thing a person could wear and Helga (Mom, Omi) had one for everyone she met. Dearly missed and forever loved by all whose lives she touched. Predeceased and reunited with her husband Blake (2003), parents Emil and Olga, Brother Helmut (Irma) and Sister Ruth (Herman). Many memories remain in the hearts of her family in Germany and Canada.
