Hertha Froelich-Maleniecki, age 93, of San Diego, passed away Tuesday morning, September 1, 2021, at Sharp Memorial Hospital. She was born April 19, 1928, in Hamburg, Germany.
Hertha was a daughter, wife, mother and grandmother. She is survived by her two daughters, Patricia Leonor Froelich-Pilichowski and Karen Ann Hankins; and three grandchildren, Gary Raye Hankins, Christina Marie Hankins and Eric Lad Hankins. She also leaves many others who will sadly miss her.
Hertha was a strong, determined and independent woman. It’s safe to say she was a perfectionist and did everything in her own special way - the right way. She was witty, hilarious and there was never a dull moment spent with her. She enjoyed sewing, pancakes, and spending time in her garden.
We will miss her every day.
Special thanks to the wonderful doctors and nurses at Sharp Memorial Hospital and to the staff at Sungarden Terrace who helped provide invaluable care.
