Helen was born in Lethbridge in 1927. She lived in Barrhill until 1968 and Picture Butte until 2013, before eventually returning to Lethbridge where she resided at Black Rock Terrace until her passing. She was a proud member of the Happy Old Timers in Picture Butte. Helen’s hobbies included golfing, camping, and she loved travelling to new places with her friends and family. Her grandchildren were her passion and the most precious things in her life. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

The family would like to extend a thank-you to the staff at Black Rock Terrace, the nurses and doctors on 3C at the Chinook Regional Hospital, as well as Renae Peterson for all of their heartfelt care and compassion to Helen.
