1928 ~ HELEN LAMB ~ 2021

Posted: April 26th, 2021

Mom slipped away quietly on the evening of April 17th, 2021 surrounded by the reminiscing voices of her loved ones. Mom is lovingly remembered by her children, Maureen (John Flood), Marilyn, Craig (Gail), and Garth (Donna); her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Jennifer (Jason), Hazel and Lochlan, Scott (Manda), Teddy, Eli, Oliver, and Skylar; Michael (Becky), Jack; Ryan (Tracy), Riley, Austin, and Kara; Curtis (Twyla); Cole (Chrissi); as well as many nieces, great-nieces, nephews, great-nephews, and family in Scotland. As Mom was the last of her generation, her family circle was wide but close. She treasured all the phone calls, cards, and stories shared over the years. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Bill in 1993; her parents, Adam and Alvira Porter; Bill’s parents, James and Jean Lamb; a brother, Russell Porter; sisters, Irene Larden, and Marian Budd; brothers-in-law, Percy Larden, Russell Budd, Robert Lamb; sisters-in-law, Lorraine Lamb, Elsie Lamb, and Iris Porter; niece, Betty Jean Tessier (Porter); nephews, Norman Larden and Ken Lamb. Mom was born on her parent’s farm at Kincaid, Saskatchewan, on August 31st, 1928, the youngest of four children. She took her teacher training in Moose Jaw in the late 1940s, fulfilling her childhood dream of becoming a teacher. Mom and Dad married in August 1952, making a beautiful life together; always putting family first, and cherishing every moment with us all. We loved hearing the stories of their courtship. She was always interested in the work of the church—singing in choirs, being secretary to Sunday schools, and volunteering where and when needed. She joined the Square Circle Unit of Westminster United Church Women in 1988 and was blessed with many close friendships. “I shall not pass through this world but once; therefore, any good that I can do or any kindness I can show or any good that I may do, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” Etienne de Grellet .
