2 Condolences for “MURKIN, Helen”

  1. Jane Marsh says:

    So sorry to learn of Helen’s passing. I got to know her through Elisa Hleucka, who was her neighbor. I loved her laugh and sense of humor; and she was the recovery nurse who took care of me after two operations at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital. It was very reassuring to have her there in that capacity.
