Helga Tonn passed away peacefully on September 16, 2005 at the age of 66. She started nursing in the maternity ward at Chilliwack General Hospital over 30 years ago and spent most of her career in public health nursing in Chilliwack and Hope.
Many would remember Helga for her involvement in the community as a public health nurse who visited new moms and babies or gave immunizations at schools, as a Chilliwack Exhibition home arts judge, as a volunteer for associations such as Chilliwack 4-H, as a camp nurse for Boy Scouts, and as a Board of Education member for Christ Lutheran Church. She supported the Mothers March, the Canadian Cancer Society and overseas missions.
Lovingly remembered by her husband Kenneth and her children Patricia and Leonard, spouse Dawn and boys Christopher and Stephen, as well as many extended family members, colleagues and good friends. Helga will be fondly remembered for her kindness, love of children, generosity and gentle way.
