14 May, 1932 – 21 April, 2021
Helene Weissenboeck (nee Klenner) passed away peacefully in her sleep at Park Lane Terrace, Paris, on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, in her 89th year.
Helene was born on May 14, 1932 in Oberwart, Austria, the fourth of nine children. She met her husband there and together they moved to Canada in 1956. She resided in Cambridge until November, 2020, when she moved to Park Lane Terrace due to declining health. Helene was a dedicated hard worker, rarely ever taking a sick day off. She worked 32 years and retired from Kralinator Filters (now known as Hanes Dana). Helene loved everything to be organized and clean. She enjoyed working in her flower gardens and watching golf on TV, even though she never played the game. Helene loved her family, and was very proud of them; she never forgot anyone’s birthday, and always sent cards to her many nieces and nephews in Austria, as well as Christmas and Easter cards. Helene will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by her children Arno (Sue) of Kincardine, Christa Dobranski (Larry) of St. George, grandchildren Greg (Tanya), Mark (Maureen), Bryan (Joe), David, and Ryan (Amy), and great-grandchildren Emmett, Noelyn, Elena, Dean, Grace, and Eric. Helene was predeceased by her husband Kurt Weissenboeck in 2001 and her siblings Anna, Wilma, Josef, Rudy, and Eric. A private burial will take place at Parklawn Cemetery in Cambridge. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Lung Association, the Canadian Cancer Society, or the Alzheimer’s Society.

Helene was a generous and loving Great Grandmother. She always had a big smile and a strong hug for those she loved. Helene loved to feed her family a good meal and share stories of her younger days in Austria. She will be remembered fondly for her frequent use of many phrases, (please imagine her accent), "No, come on!", "All blown up like a jack rabbit!", and "You know?" - among many others. Helene will be deeply missed. Go in peace, Great Grandma.
P.S. I wanted to share our many photos, but sadly they wouldn't load to the website.
