Cordula Doris Vogt
March 3, 1955 – May 28, 2012
Cordula died peacefully on May 28th, 2012. She spent her last months the way she lived, surrounded by family, friends, flowers and music. Her lengthy illness did not diminish her joy in life or her concern for others.
Cordula loved the West Coast. She swam and kayaked in the ocean, skied in the mountains and hiked in the forests. Her curiosity led her to travel the world and learn many languages. When her beloved husband, Andreas, died, she established the Andreas Vogt Nature Reserve on Salt Spring Island.
Cordula was a devoted practitioner and teacher of yoga. She had a talent for working with specialized groups, including adults with disabilities and new mothers. She loved gardening and singing with the Women of Note choir.
Cordula was a loving and caring mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. She will be forever missed by her children Kai and Svea, parents Horst and Oda Nowrath, sister Gwen (Philip), brother Bernard (Wendy), and parents-in-law Helmut and Irmgard Vogt.
Her family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Lady Minto Hospital. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the Lady Minto Foundation. A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, June 3 from 2-4 at 260 Mountain View Drive, Salt Spring Island.
Namaste om, Cordula
