elevated oXfFy Obituary

elevated oXfFy Hedwig Aleida Hoedlmoser (née Kleinkes)

elevated oXfFy Loving wife of 63 years to George, and devoted mother to Peter, Caroline, and Andrew; mother-in-law to Sharon, Robert and Manuela; grandmother to Kirsten, Ess, Claire, Christina, Samantha, Erin, Sean, Gabrielle and Madeline, and great-grandmother to Michelle and Eleanor. She will be dearly missed.

elevated oXfFy Hedwig flew from Dusseldorf to Canada at the age of 19. She only meant to stay for 2 years, but life had other plans. She arrived at her Aunt Dina and Uncle Heini’s house in Toronto, where a young man from Austria was sitting at the kitchen table reading a newspaper – that man was George Hoedlmoser. They were married in 1959, bought their first house that spring, and started their family shortly thereafter.
Hedwig and George shared a love of travel and created many happy memories throughout their life.  Thirty years of summers were spent sailing the islands of Georgian Bay together; and their retirement years saw them driving all across North America with their trailer in search of more adventures.

elevated oXfFy Hedwig loved her family deeply and showed this care and attention through acts of service to all the people in her life: she was the heart and soul of many family gatherings throughout the years, where  she created magic in the kitchen and took tireless joy in preparing favourite dish after favourite dish; she was an incredibly talented seamstress who created many of her own beautiful outfits over the years; and was an active and devoted member of the Kolping Association of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church throughout her life.

elevated oXfFy We would like to extend many sincere thanks to the medical staff of Sunnybrook and North York General Hospitals who cared for Hedwig these past few months. She fought her medical battles with the same resiliency and determination that she brought to all aspects of her life. She passed away peacefully on Monday, November 21st, 2022 with family at her side.
