Helga enjoyed reading, listening to her favorite German music, watching TV travel logs, watching Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz, eating out at restaurants with her friends, and caring for animals. She loved animals and was always concerned for their welfare. She was a member of the Austrian-American Enzian Club, the Colorado Springs Breakfast Club, and participated in dinner meetings for people interested in learning and practicing German at the Edelweiss Restaurant. Memorial gifts should be given to an animal welfare organization of your choice in honor of Helga and her love for animals. No memorial service is planned at Helga’s request.
