EDELTRUD VON MCHALY LeBLANC was born August 26, 1925 in Vienna, Austria. On January 14, 2009 after fighting a long and courageous battle against pancreatic cancer she left us to begin her new journey as our "ANGEL". In her life, she was a wonderful, loving wife to her husband and soulmate, Paul. An exceptional and extraordinary mother, kind, loving and forgiving, to her three children, Spass, Katja and Denise. A friend to all who met and knew her, loyal and all-giving. It is hard for us, family and friends, to imagine our daily lives without her but we know that she is in a better place and will watch and care for us until we meet again. From all of us and her four grandchildren, Tara, Alexis, Eleia and Nina and her three "honorary children" Fritz, Tola and Jeremy, we say "THANK YOU". We love you and you will be missed. She will know that she is always with us because she is always in us, now and forever. With our heartfelt love, thank you Mama for everything you have given us in our lives. As per her wishes, Trudy donated her body for medical research so that she could give something back to the world that gave her so much. She has been gone now for one week and the time has been both short and long but we are happy for her and the peace that she has finally found. "AUF WIEDERSEHEN".
