Our beautiful Mother, Grandmother, sister, daughter, and best friend, Helga Maria Nagle, passed away at home Wednesday evening, November 9, 2016 at about 8:30 p.m., at the age of 86 years. She had been living with and bravely fighting ovarian cancer for 14 years. 

Helga was a strong, wonderful, and loving woman, that lived an amazing and fruitful life. She was born to parents, Josef and Maria Knirsch in Vienna, Austria, July 31, 1930, and eventually immigrated to America in 1951. Helga married William F. Braden in America, though eventually remarried to the love of her life, August Clinton Nagle. "Clint" passed away in 1986, and Helga never remarried. 

Helga's first child and best friend, Katherine (Kathy Sennsibello, married name), sadly passed from breast cancer in 2000. Helga is survived by her sister, in Vienna, Austria, Ingrid Stiglitz and her husband Alois; daughter, Karen Wilburn and her husband Greg Wilburn of Newbury Park, California; son, Gerald Braden of Akron, Ohio; son, Mark Nagle and his wife Shanda Nagle of Akron, Ohio, and their two sons and Helga's grandsons, Ian and Jacob Nagle, who are the pride of Helga's love and life. We will always miss you Mom, and you will always be in our hearts. Du bist die Liebe, Licht und Herz meines Lebens....
