Ilse Giese


A resident of the Osgoode Care Centre for the past 10 years, Ilse Lieselotte Giese (nee Fischer) passed away there on Saturday, January 19, 2013. She was 86.   

Ilse was born in Thale/Harz, Germany on December 26, 1926, to her parents Otto and Louise Fischer (Hofmann). 

She was raised in Germany and immigrated to Canada in 1953, and settled in Ottawa. 

She married Gunther Giese on July 20, 1956, in the Ottawa Court House.  

In the early 1960’s, the family moved to Navan where they lived until 1976, when they moved to R.R.# 2 Chesterville.  

Ilse and Gunther were foster parents to many children over the years, and she loved birds that visited her many feeders and her dogs, cats and horses.  

Ilse is survived by her children Derry Moke (Margaret Shaver) of Williamsburg and Cindy Wolfe of Williamsburg.  Ilse will be fondly remembered by her grandchildren Jesse Wolfe and Amber Moke. She was predeceased by her husband Gunther.   

There was no visitation or funeral service.  Donations to the O.S.P.C.A. would be appreciated by the family.
