She was predeceased by her son Byron, parents Simon & Kathleen, brothers Steve, Simon & Frank and sister Anne. Helen was born in Rabbit Lake, Saskatchewan on Sept 10, 1936. At a young age she moved with her family to Southern Alberta where she met and married Dale on December 17, 1955. She was a stay at home mom until her children reached school age at which time she went to work at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital until her retirement in 1996. Helen and Dale enjoyed many trips to Las Vegas including some bus trips. She loved travelling and camping. Christmas was a very special time for Helen and she spent months planning, buying gifts and making the holiday special for her family. The grandchildren always looked forward to this. One of her favourite things to do was to have family and friends over to play cards or dice. She was a dedicated fan at her grandchildren’s many sporting events. In her later years Helen and Dale enjoyed countless hours at their campsite which they referred to as the Campbell Ranch. In lieu of flowers and in memory of Helen, please gather with your family and loved ones around a campfire and toast Helen with a shot of Crown Royal or Jack Daniels. A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 pm on Monday, June 20, 2016 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 4th St. S., Lethbridge, AB
