Passed away peacefully at home on Sept. 23, 2018. Predeceased by husband Peter and daughter Iris. Survived by her brother Wilfried (Franziska) and sister Karin (Horst). Loving mother of Harry (Nancy) Serwo, Monika (Harold) Hallett, Romy (Darrell) Serwo, grandchildren Tom Hallett and Tanis (Randy) Houle. Loving nephew and niece Boris (Anke) and Jenny (Peter).
Helga was born on April 20, 1938 in Liegnitz, Germany. She graduated from nursing school and started her nursing career in Hamburg. There she met the love of her life and started to raise their family. The family emigrated to Canada in 1966 and started their new passion, viticulture. Working alongside her husband in the vineyard and later in the winery gave Helga the greatest satisfaction. Even in winter, she could be found cross country skiing through the rows of grapes.
Upon her retirement to Penticton, she continued to enjoy the great outdoors, and was especially fond of walks along Skaha beach.
A private family service was held in Oliver on November 24th 2018.
