BUEHRER , Hilde (nee Menken)
1946 - 2012
Passed away on October 20, 2012 at the Royal Victoria Hospital surrounded by her family. She had been diagnosed with cancer in 1994 and lived everyday with hope, joy and courage. Hilde loved spending time in the garden, painting, eating good food, cooking, shopping, going on walks and cherished time with her family and friends. Hilde leaves behind Fred, her husband of 42 years and his brother, Daniel and his wife Rosa Ana of Valencia Spain; her son, Chris; her daughter, Karin Concettini and her husband Alex, and their children Alice and Breanna of Ottawa; her extended family in Ottawa, Gatineau and Val-d'Or and her many friends. She touched the lives of so many people including her doctors and nurses, especially Dr. L. Gilbert whom she had so much trust, love and respect for. The family thanks the medical team who treated Hilde so well over many years. We believe Hilde is in a better place now and is enjoying the family reunion with her mother Emma, father Bernhard, sister Ingrid and dog Niki. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Royal Victoria Hospital Foundation, c/o Dr. Lucy Gilbert, Chief Division of Gynecology Oncology. A visitation and a memorial service to celebrate the rich and fulfilled life of Hilde will be held on Thursday, November 8, 2012 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. with a memorial service to follow in the chapel of the funeral home.
