HILDEGARD PAULS (HEIMLICH) October 22, 1925 - June 20, 2017 Hildegard Pauls passed away at Concordia Hospital on June 20, 2017, at the age of 91 years old. She is survived by her husband Frank, sons Jim, Gary (Barb), and daughter Sandi Hrem (Blaine). She will also be sadly missed by her grandchildren, Wade, Jared, Erika, Trevor, Jazlyn and Kristen. Hildegard is survived by her brothers, Edmund (Isolde) and Ervin, her sister Eugenia, her sister-in-law Olli, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Ferdinand and Olga Heimlich, brother Rudolph, sister-in-law Inge, and brother-in-law Willie. Hildegard was born, with her first language being German, on a 22 acre farm that consisted of grain and livestock in Sieradz, Poland. She overcame a lot of hardships in her late teens going through the Second World War. After the war she moved from East to West Germany and one year later moved to Winnipeg. In 1951 she met her husband Frank and they married on September 25, 1954, and remained together for 62 years. Hildegard, a home maker, raised their three children with finesse and love as Frank worked long hours in construction. Her passion was her children, gardening, cooking, baking and sewing. She travelled back to Germany a few times to see her relatives, and always kept in touch by phone or letters. When her grandchildren were born they became her focus, showering them with love and care. She was a very strong, loving, kind and beautiful lady. She had a funny sense of humour and loved her music and family time. She always took pride in her appearance right up until her health issues overcame her and the angels took her from us. We will always love and miss our Mutti, Oma, Schwester and Tante deeply. A special thanks to the wonderful staff at Concordia Hospital for all of their wonderful care. In lieu of flowers, if you wish, you may make a donation to The Heart & Stroke Foundation honouring Hildegard. Funeral services will be held Monday, June 26, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at Klassen Funeral Home, with a viewing at 9:30 a.m., with Reverend Jason Zinko officiating. Burial will take place at Brookside Cemetery following the service and luncheon. KLASSEN FUNERAL HOME 1897 HENDERSON HWY. 204-338-0331 Condolences may be sent to
