Helene Schubert

Born April 10, 1931 in Hamburg, Germany – November 5, 2016

Sadly we announce the passing of our very special Mom and Oma after a short battle with cancer. She was surrounded by love at her home with children Ralf (Peggy), Rita (Rocky), grandchildren Markus (Teresa), Samantha (Nathan), her little dog Abby and her unborn great-granddaughter who she so hoped to hold in her arms.

We take comfort in knowing she is together again with Dad (Benno), her loving husband of 62 years, whom she missed so very much these past 12 years.

Her family was her life – she was always there with open arms and tender loving care.

Rest in peace dear Mamma – Oma. Love you more.

No service by request.

The family would like to send special thanks to Dr. DeBruin and the homecare nursing team – north: Janine, Shauna, Marissa, Brittney and especially Colin, for their special care of Mom and of us. Thank you all so very much.

We are experiencing technical difficulties with our commenting platform and hope to be up and running again soon. In the meantime, you can still send us your thoughts on Facebook or Twitter, or submit a letter to the editor.
