Memorial Planned for Helga Friedericke Blazkova-Berger

Helga Friedericke Blazkova-Berger, longtime St. Thomas resident, died on June 17 in Plano, Texas. She was born in Germany on March 25, 1932, to Friedericke Tietjen and Bedrich Blazek (Mr. Bata of Bata Shoes and Uptown Shoe Store).
A Memorial Service will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 7, at the Baha’i National Center.
Helga was the proud mother of Cornelia, Karen and Greg, and the loving grandmother of Rand, Sam, Adam and Regan. She held degrees in history, anthropology and psychology, and taught at the University of the Virgin Islands.
Helga was a student of life, always reading and looking for new information. She was a life-long teacher, always imparting information, help and/or guidance. Her hobbies were many and varied — from weaving, painting and stitchery to gardening and cooking; she continually tried new things along with practicing the old.
Helga is survived by her children: Cornelia Meseke, Karen McConathy and her husband Kevin, Greg Berger and his wife Laura; grandchildren, Rand McConathy, Sam McConathy, Adam Berger and Regan Berger.
For more information, call 469-834-5062.
Directions: from Nisky go up Crown Mountain Road; turn left at the sign to the Baha’i National Center (narrow road); then turn left into the driveway at the second Baha’i sign.
