Hella STOHLER

Hella Katharina Stohler, January 11, 1933 РApril 17, 2010 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Hella at the age of 77 on April 17, 2010 at the Penticton Regional Hospital. Hella was born in Offenburg, Germany to Katharina & Jacob and was the youngest of six daughters. After meeting and marrying Michel Stohler, together they moved to Ontario in 1961; first settling in North Bay, and then Brampton, and eventually Caledon where Hella worked at the Dufferin area hospital. Hella loved gardening and the outdoors, and the property at Caledon and the cottage at Lake Commanda provided many years of enjoyment. This love of the outdoors led Hella and Michel to Nanaimo, BC in 1997, and then more recently to Summerland in 2008. Hella is survived by her husband Michel, daughter Nicole & son-in-law Morris and grand children Damiano & Brianna, son Michael & daughter-in-law Gillian and grand children Katarina, Natasha, Tobias, & Nicola, and sisters Liesel, Elfrieda, & Margot and their families. A celebration of Hella’s life was held in Summerland on Wednesday and Hella now rests in peace at the Summerland Canyonview cemetery.
