It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Mother and Oma, Herta Chelczynski, on March 27th, 2010 at the age of 90.

Herta was born near Tallinn, Estonia on April 18th, 1919. During WWII she worked for U.N.R.A.U. a United Nation Refugee Organization for displaced persons. During this time Herta met and married the love of her life, Tadeuz Chelczynski, who predeceased her in 1989.

Herta first laid eyes on Chilliwack in 1949 and thought it was the most beautiful place on earth. She raised her family and worked at Fraser Valley Foods till her retirement in 1979. She was a woman of boundless energy. She will be laid to rest in her beautiful place, forever to remain.

Herta is survived by her loving children Krystyna (Jack) Rebagliati, Eric (Yvonne) Chelczynski, Richard (Nancy) Chelczynski, and her very precious grandchildren Amber, Michelle, Kevin, and Alec.
