Predeceased by her loving husbands, Perce, in 1945 and second husband Jim in 2008, her father Albert, mother Jane, sister Alma and brother Andy.
Helen, mother and grandmother will be dearly missed, along with her frugal and caring personality which were all fortunately instilled with those who followed in her steps. She was a regal and fashionable lady who was not mesmerized with material items. Helen was quick witted, enjoyed playing games and winning, her books, and scrabble but most of all loved being around her family.
