Obituary of Hildegard Hedwig Losing
In Loving Memory
Hildegard H. Losing
July 5, 1919 ~ November 3, 2023
Hilda Losing, born on July 5, 1919, in Ardrossan, Alberta, was the fourth child of Wilhelm and Christina Felske. She peacefully passed away on November 3, 2023, at the age of 104, surrounded by her family at the Consort Hospital and Care Centre.
Growing up as the middle child in a family of three brothers and three sisters, Hilda's childhood was filled with activity and cherished memories. After attending Glen Garden School, Hilda remained on the family farm, helping with the demanding household tasks and farm chores required to sustain a farm livelihood, in the challenging 1930's.
Seeking greater opportunity, Hilda secured work in Edmonton where she met the love of her life, Bill Losing, who became her husband in April 1945. Together, they raised a family of four daughters, creating a life filled with love, joy, and laughter.
Following their retirement in 1976, Hilda and Bill settled in Consort. Retirement brought new adventures as they explored destinations far and wide, making memories that would last a lifetime.
Hilda remained in the home after Bill's deeply sorrowful passing in 1990. She continued to travel and kept up with her active involvement in diverse activities including floor curling, card games, volunteering, reading, solving puzzles, crocheting, gardening, and, above all, treasuring time spent with her family, including her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
In November 2011, Hilda transitioned to Consort Seniors Lodge, where she spent 12 happy years in the company of friends and continued participating in various activities and events. Her vibrant social spirit continued to shine. At the age of 103, she moved to Consort Long-Term care, cherishing visits from her family friends and occasional outings.
Hilda is survived by her loving daughters: Evelyn (Ronald) Webb, Shirley Losing, Ellen (Donald) Bogen and Dianne Losing; nine grandchildren; sixteen great grandchildren; one great great grandchild; brother Eric (Olga) Felske; sisters-in-law Ella Bitz and Doris Felske; as well as numerous other relatives and many dear friends.
Hilda’s remarkable energy and unwavering love for life served as an inspiration to all who knew her. She leaves behind a legacy of love, resilience, and a deep appreciation for family and community. Though she will be deeply missed, her memory will forever live on in the hearts of those she touched.
