Gudela (Judy) Isolde Hentschel

July 25, 1932 - August 5, 2014


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Gudela (Judy) Hentschel on August 5th, 2014 at Mountain Lake Seniors Community in Nelson, BC. Judy was born in Mufundi, Tanzania, the youngest of three children. She had many fond memories of her childhood on a coffee and tea plantation. Her family was forced to return to Germany during World War II. Judy eventually took an agriculture course, then later moved to Canada and received training as a Practical Nurse in Sarnia, Ontario.


Judy was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in 1963. She moved to Kaslo in 1978, where she became known for her loving generosity. She lived a very modest, environmentally friendly lifestyle, nurturing her small garden, teaching others about the Bible's promise of Paradise, and providing a living demonstration of real Christian love.


Judy is survived by her loving brother, Hartfried, in Sarnia, Ontario, and a niece in Germany. She will be sincerely missed by her family of fellow believers throughout BC.


A Memorial Service was held at the Kindom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Nelson, BC on August 9th, 2014 at 3:00pm.
