Helga Borchert was bookkeeper at the Leaside Dominion

A much-loved resident of Leaside and friend to many, Helga Borchert, has died at 80 with her family present in the palliative care unit at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Helga and her husband Heinz arrived in Canada from Germany in 1964 with barely $50 to their names and became the valued superintendents of a Leaside apartment building. Helga was a well-known figure and friend to both co-workers and customers in her capacity over many years as bookkeeper and cashier at the “Leaside” Dominion store (now Metro) at Bayview and Eglinton Aves. Friends of Helga Borchert may pay their respects Friday, March 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Humphrey’s Funeral Home at Bayview Ave. and St. Cuthbert’s Road. A service will be held in the Chapel on Saturday, March 18th at 3 p.m. Obituary

    Woah, what’s with that picture of the store? Did it really look like that back then? I can’t even find an architectural point of reference. 🙂
