Helga Luise Gertrud Bambrough (née Neumann) passed away at the Élisabeth Bruyère Hospital on December 10, 2015, after a brief but courageous battle with colon cancer. Helga was the beloved wife of Anthony, dear mother to Marion and Clare, grandmother to Terry (Debbie), and Sandra (René). Helga was predeceased by her brother Robert Hemp. Born in Berlin, Germany, Helga’s education was cut short by World War 2. Despite her early years of hardship, Helga’s intelligence and lifelong love of literature and the English language led to a career lasting into her eighties as a German to English translator. A funeral for Helga will be held at St. Matthias Anglican Church, 555 Parkdale Ave., Saturday, December 19, at 1 pm. In memory of Helga or in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to World Vision or WUSC
