We Remember

HIENDL, Angela Hedda (Scholze)

May 22nd, 1940 — February 24, 2018

Angela was born in Munich, Germany May 22nd, 1940 to Fritz and Hannah Scholze.  After a courageous, four-year battle with lung cancer, Angela sadly passed away on February 24, 2018.

Predeceased by her parents, Fritz and Hannah Scholze, step-mother Rosa Scholze, sister Hannah and nephew Ralf.  Angela lost her parents at a very young age and was raised by her stepmother. After surviving World War II, she started her apprenticeship as a secretary.

In 1956 she followed the love of her life, Tony, to Canada. They got married on January 18th, 1957 in Toronto and spent 61 wonderful years together. Their first child, Susan, was born May 7, 1958 and second child Anthony, was born August 29, 1960.

Tony worked in industrial construction. In the first 5 years, they moved 18 times to different construction sites from Windsor, Ontario to Sorel, Quebec.  After settling down in Burlington, Ontario, they built their first house as a Centennial project in 1967. Angela was a stay at home Mom raising her two children who were her pride and joy. The children always came first.

To her daughter, she was a loving and nurturing Mom and will always be remembered for all her special qualities and talents.

To her son, a goalie, she was a proud hockey Mom.  She wrote and submitted articles about hockey to the Hamilton Spectator.  After Susan and Tony left home to follow their own dreams, Angela and Tony became empty nesters and tried condo living. They were able to spend 11 winters in Florida.  Angela had employment with Canada Post and Simpson’s department store while in Ontario.  In 1992, they moved to Winfield, BC to build their dream home in the Carrs Landing area. Angela found employment at the Zellers Department store in Kelowna.

Angela always strived to do her best in whatever she did. She was a very classy, fashion-conscious lady, who always made sure she looked her best.

After living 13 years in Winfield, BC, it became necessary for Tony to have a hip replacement and it became too much of a chore to maintain the property.  It was necessary to live in a condo once again. After two years in the condo, they were looking for a new home and found one in Gallagher’s Golf Course community. Even though they were not golfers, the quality of life available there was so very important to them.  Angela’s creative touch was noticeable inside and outside of the home. Her love of flowers and gardening made her a happy camper. She loved touring the countryside with their BMW roadster (top down) with their special group of friends. Their last road cruise was to Oliver, BC, on October 8, 2017. Angela was admitted to Hospice October 15th.  Angela and Tony enjoyed vacationing in Florida, Hawaii, Mexico, Arizona and cruising to Alaska. She also enjoyed several camping trips in Florida in their Volkswagen campers. Another one of Tony and Angela’s greatest pleasures was sailing their boats on Lake Ontario, off the coast of southern Florida and on Okanagan Lake.  She was a very enthusiastic photographer creating many photo albums as a hobby.

In addition to her husband Tony, Angela is survived by her children Susan Hiendl (Bryan Munchrath) and Anthony (Kelly) Hiendl, granddaughters Jillian and Lindsay Hiendl, all of Calgary and brother Fritz (Hilde dec.) Scholze (nieces and nephews) of Germany.

Many heartfelt thanks go out to our family members, friends and to the very caring and professional staff at the Kelowna Hospice House during Angela’s stays. Also many thanks to the special team of Dr. S. Rao and Dr. I. Mohamed, including the caring nurses, who all gave Angela the very best care and treatment possible at the Cancer Centre.

There will be a Memorial Gathering in the Spring, date and time to be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Angela’s name to the Kelowna Hospice House – 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC V1Y 2Z6 and/or the Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Cancer Centre- 399 Royal Ave, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 5L3.

Angela touched many lives and she will be missed.

Condolences

  • Margaret Daniel says:

    Sincere condolences are sent to Tony and the family. Angela and Tony and I met during the summer of 1978 when Tony was the supervisor for lakefront revetment work being done at my parents’ cottage. I found Angela to be a warm and caring new friend and, yes, every inch “the classy lady.” With our busy lives we were not able to see one another as much as I would have liked but it seemed that after she and Tony moved to B.C., our friendship grew closer and stronger. We kept in touch mainly through frequent e-mails and being avid gardeners, Angela and I shared many pictures. During Angela’s four-year battle with cancer, I constantly carried thoughts of her. My life was made richer by knowing her and she and Tony will remain in my heart forever. Angela, I know you are at peace now — a peace you so richly deserve and Tony, may you find peace in the memories of your beautiful life together.

    Angela was a great lady, she will be missed but never forgotten – my sincere condolences to Tony and family.

  • Bob and Doris Wilson says:

    Heartfelt condolences from Doris and I, to our dear friend Tony. We remember Angela for her wry sense of humour and bravery in facing her sickness. She was a true fighter. It puts a big smile on our faces remembering her as one of the group of 8 of us making day trips last summer in our sports cars. We will miss her!

    Our deepest Sympathy

    Dear Tony,

    We were sorry to read that Angela has passed away, but appreciate

    and thank Susan for contacting us. Angela will be dearly missed by her

    family, relatives, and many friends.

    As long-time neighbours and friends, we remember her as a devoted

    wife and companion to you, Tony, as she worked alongside of you to

    reach your joint goals together. One goal was recreational sailing, which

    she thoroughly enjoyed. You introduced it to us, and we spent some very

    enjoyable times together with both of you on Lake Ontario, and still think about

    to this date. Thank you, Tony, for being behind the camera to snap this memory.

    You and Angela were good neighbours to have for so many years, and

    our friendship continued beyond your time in Burlington. The suggestion

    of yours, to carry on as neighbours in Winfield, was of interest, but not

    possible, as we figured that traveling to Ontario would become harder, in time.

    Susan and Tony Jr. were her pride and joy, and supported many of their

    recreational activities during their growing-up years. A pony for Susan, and

    early hockey practices, before school, for Tony Jr.

    Our thoughts and condolences are with you, Tony, and also, all your family.

    We hope that the love and memories of Angela, will support everyone of you

    during these sad days, and always.

    All our Best, with love,

    Ingrid & Egon.

    Dearest Tony,

    It was with great sadness that I heard about the passing of your beloved wife Angela.
    Please accept my sincere condolences for such a great loss.
    I pray for the exaltation of her luminous soul in all the kingdoms of God.
    May her soul be cherished with the token of God’s all-encompassing mercy.

    You two were one Angel together. I have many fond memories of our beloved Angela. May she rest in peace.

    With loving greetings, Marsel

  • Barbara and Finn Hestdalen says:

    Our deepest condolences to Tony and your family. As neighbours, we always admired how beautifully you and Angela kept your house and yard. It was perfection! And It was obvious how much you both loved each other and delighted in each other’s company. Angela was lovely and had a friendly and kind way about her. We will miss her being a part of our neighbourhood and are sad for your loss.

  • Peter Schubert says:

    Dear Tony,
    Erika, Theresa and I were sorry to read the bad news. You and Angela were one of the first people my dad “Heinz” and mom “Erika” met when we arrived from Munich in 1958. We spent many nice times at your house and yard by Lake Ontario. We moved to New York in 1963 but stayed in touch with you and when we moved to Ft. Lauderdale we managed to visit each other. We also enjoyed those sailing trips and our attempt at going to the Bahamas but the weather never did co-operate. My parents visited you several times out west and always enjoyed their times with you. I was only 12 years old when I met you and Angela and she was always that beautiful classy lady. I am truly sorry that we did not communicate more often since our move to North Carolina in 2007. To this day I sometimes think about your very funny “Ice” story when you first moved to Canada.
    Our thoughts and condolences are with you and your family and Erika (now 93 y.o.) was truly shocked to hear the news.
    Herzliche Gruesse,
    Peter & Theresa Schubert,
    Erika Steinberger

  • Susan and Neil Hutchison says:

    Dearest Tony and family,
    We only knew Angela for a very short while, but it was like we knew her for a very long time. She embraced our friendship and we had so much fun in her company. We so enjoyed our “roadster” day trips….. zooming around corners and seeing a smile on Tony and Angela’s faces.
    She made us laugh with her stories and her enthusiasm in telling her stories.
    Angela was extremely energetic and fun loving… a real “live wire” and we will really miss her.
    Sincere friends, Susan and Neil Hutchison

  • Patricia Iwaskow says:

    Dear Tony:
    Our sincerest condolences Tony, on the passing of Angela. Anyone knowing the two of you knew that you weren’t just husband and wife, but each other’s best and dearest friend.
    Our fondest memories will always be the numerous dinners we shared over the many years of our friendship. Whether at Tony & Angela’s home, or at ours, we truly enjoyed those evenings. Angela never thought of herself as much of a cook, but her dinners were always delicious and we never turned down an invitation to dine. I remember evenings discussing Angela and Tony’s youth in Germany, as well as the interesting details of their first few years in Canada. A baked potato in your pocket can be used to keep your hands warm in the morning and then eaten for lunch :). We will cherish forever all these memories of relaxing evenings and the wonderful discussions. We will never be able to look at a roasted goose without thoughts of our lovely Angela.
    With all our love,
    Kim & Patti
