Gisela M. Heigelmann Obituary
Gisela M. Heigelmann, age 76, of Rootstown, passed away Sunday, October 30, 2011, at Mason Aine in Stow.

She was born May 16, 1935, in Itzehoe, Germany, a daughter of the late Friedich and Martha (Hupke) Halter. Gisela was a member of the German Family Society of Brimfield where she belonged to the group's choir. She enjoyed spending time with her German friends, and always loved the holidays, especially Christmas. Her fondness for music and dancing was only matched by her love of flowers and gardening.

She is survived by her beloved husband, Wolfgang U. Heigelmann, whom she married on December 11, 1954. Other family members include her sons, Volker (Georgia) Heigelmann of Lakeland, Fla. and Norman L. (Eileen) Heigelmann of Mogadore; grandchildren, Ryan, Zachary, Brandon, Matthew, Jennifer, and Melissa; and her sister, Lydia (Kurt) Hofer of Florida. Gisela was preceded in death by her son, Michael W. Heigelmann.

Cremation has taken place, and a memorial service will be celebrated by Reverend David Misbrener at 3 p.m. on Thursday, November 3, 2011, at the Wood-Kortright-Borkoski Funeral Home, 703 E. Main St., Ravenna.
