OTTILIA ELIZABETH WHITTAKER
(née Gallai)

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved mother Ottilia.

Ottilia originated in Budapest, Hungary. She was the fourth of five children. She immigrated to Canada during the Hungarian revolution of 1956. She came as a young woman and worked hard to become established and raise her children. She faced adversity and with determination created a life surrounded by her children, Muci, Andy (Judy), Sandra (Rick), George, and Tom (Christina); grandchildren, April(Steve), Erik, Brendon, Joey, Christina(Fletcher), Tannis(Matt), Jessica, Andy, Shania, Aurora, Trey and Dylan; as well as great-grandchildren, Tabbitha, Lily, Hunter, Hailey, and Hudson.

In 2014 Ottilia was able to return to Hungary and reunite, after over 50 years, with sister Baka Györgyné. In 2016 she moved to Winnipeg to live with her daughter Sandra and 5 months a year she would spend in Alberta with her grandson Brendon.

Ottilia will forever be remembered by the love she gave, the food she cooked and joy she shared with her family. Her legacy will not be forgotten. Rest easy now mom you will forever be in our hearts. Love you.
