Hedy took pleasure in raising her children and spending time with grandchildren and great grandchildren. She and John loved to travel to Hawaii and spend time at their home away from home on Pickerel Lake.
Hedy was a person who enjoyed outdoor life such as fishing, picking blueberries, mushrooms and most of all working in her breathtaking gardens. Hedy was very knowledgeable and enjoyed helping her neighbors in whichever way she could. She also enjoyed her time with friends who came to visit as she always had a pot of coffee ready; if you were lucky she would even plate up her well known apple strudel.
In Hedy’s last days she expressed to Sandra how fortunate she was to have fulfilled her dreams and done what she had always dreamt of doing. She accepted that it was her time to go home to God and be with her true love again. She was very thankful for all her memories with her family and friends which she will take with her to share in Heaven.
She will be sadly missed by all.
The family would like to extend their sincerest thanks to all the nursing staff at Concordia Hospital, 3rd floor West, for the care they provided.
