She is survived by her children Peter Janke of Dusseldorf, Sean (Leah) Croft of Dubai, and Erika Croft of Delta, BC, as well as by her grandchildren, Patrick and Nicholas Croft, and Kolton Braulyn.

The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff of the New Horizons Care Home in Campbell River, and would especially like to convey their deepest appreciation to Perry and Linda Eagle of Campbell River for their selfless dedication to Helga’s care and well-being during this past year.
