Helga Bahls

November 6, 1937 - December 31, 2013


In loving memory of Helga Frieda Bahls

Her Smile

Though her smile is gone forever
and her hand I cannot touch
I still have so many memories
Of the one I loved so much.
Her memory is now my keepsake
Which with I'll never part.
God has her in his keeping
I have her in my heart.
Sadly missed but never forgotten.

Helga Frieda Bahls, November 6, 1937 – December 31, 2013     

Helga Bahls of Abbotsford, BC left us suddenly on December 31st, 2013.  She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.  She was born November 6, 1937 in Danzig, Germany.  She married Horst Bahls on June 6, 1957 and they immigrated to Canada in 1958.  They settled in Kitimat, BC and raised their two children.  In 1982, they moved to Sandspit, BC where Helga helped to manage a grocery store and clothing store before they retired to Abbotsford in 1988.

Helga was an active member of the Peace Lutheran Church and volunteered many hours for the Abbotsford Regional Hospital auxiliary.  She loved to travel, garden, spend time with her family and friends, watch tennis, read and bake delicious stollen.  Helga had a “can do” personality and was a very loving and caring person who never hesitated to help her family and friends.  She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Helga leaves behind her beloved husband of 56 years and true love, Horst; daughter Petra Rausch; son Michael Bahls, granddaughters Natasha and Nicole, sister Gisela Voss and many friends.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, January 10, 2014 at 11:00 am at Peace Lutheran Church, 2029 Ware Street in Abbotsford (corner of Ware and Marshall Rd).

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made in her honour to:

Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon

1212 West Broadway

Vancouver, British Columbia, V6H 3V2

The Bahls Family would like to express their appreciation to everyone for the thoughtfulness and kindness that has been shown to them during this difficult time.

“Say not in grief 'she is no more' but live in thankfulness that she was'”.
