HELGA KARIN BOELEN
17 January 1957 – 20 December 2015
Passed away peacefully at the PEC Memorial Hospital, Picton, ON.
After living many years in Montreal and Toronto,
Helga embraced “the County” as her home,
and a place to create and perfect her beautiful art.
Beloved wife of Paul Boelen for over 34 years.
Helga will be deeply missed by her sons Matthew and James,
and her much loved dog Wally.
Helga is the cherished daughter of Robert Bergmann of Grand Bend, ON
and the late Inge Bergmann.
She is survived by her sister Tina (Lance) Keutsch and
her brothers Uwe (Cindy) Bergmann and Bob (Cathy) Bergmann.
Many thanks to Helga’s care team from ParaMed and Saint Elizabeth,
and to her doctors at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.
A very special thank-you to her many friends and Dr. Helen Cluett of the
Prince Edward Family Health Team who all went far beyond expectations
to support Helga through her time of need.
At Helga’s request, cremation has taken place.
A Celebration of Life will take place at a future date in 2016.
