Ann Helwig

Ann Lorraine Helwig (nee Schnurr), of Hanover, passed away suddenly on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the Hanover & District Hospital.  She was 83.


Born on November 19, 1933 in Walkerton to the late Arthur and Ellen "Nellie" (nee Knox) Schnurr.  She was a faithful member of Holy Family Church and the Catholic Womens League for over 50 years.  Ann was known for her very caring and giving personality - often sending hot meals, cards and baked goods to her very good neighbours, friends and family. Ann has touched the lives of many children as their caregiver and "day time Mom"- keeping contact with many well into their adult years and speaking proudly of them all.

She took great pride in her children, their spouses and grandchildren and loved family gatherings. Ann loved a good game of cards and getting together with many good friends for her coffee and breakfast outings.


Ann was a loving mother of five children including sons Richard (Wendy) of Hanover, Michael (Susan) of Ayr and three daughters, Jean Ann (Mo) Goll of London, Cathy Helwig of Kitchener and Mary Lee (David) Hopkins of Hanover. Proud grandma to Margaret Ann, Brandon and Jessica.  Dear sister to Donald (Joan) Schnurr of Scarborough and Irene (Bob) Marriott of Kimbal, Michigan. Lovingly remembered by sister and brother in law Doris (Gord) Subject of Mississauga.  Predeceased by her beloved husband Stuart Helwig (2005) and sisters Margaret (Melchoir) Bogdon, Helen (Bernie) McShane and Theresa (Joe) MacMillan and brother Jack (Evelyn) Schnurr. Sadly missed by several nieces and nephews.
