January 10, 1953 – May 18, 2021
HELEN “TAVIA” ANDRÉE MAHEU passed away peacefully at the St. Michael’s Health Centre – Palliative Care Unit with family and close friends at her side, on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at the age of 68 years.
Thank you Tavia for all of the gifts you gave your friends and family over the 68 years you were with us on this earth. You were generous of spirit, kind to all, exceptionally creative and forever beautiful. You gifted us with two fine sons: Ira (Kira) and Lorien (Christine). You are leaving a legacy of light and love to your two grandchildren: Jasper and Opal, who will know you in spirit even though, sadly, you never met them in person. You were loved and admired by many dear friends, cousins and colleagues. You lovingly cared for Mary and Chuck with compassion and grace. You shared your wisdom and knowledge with all of those you touched and loved. Pictures, collages and other pieces of art that illustrate your creative brilliance will live on in our lives and “colour” fond memories forever.
In some unknown way, you will be joining those who went before, your parents Ruth and Marcel and your Aunt Andée and Uncle Yves.
“As she was beautiful, a shining light in life, so she shall remain in the hearts of all those who loved her.”
You gifted me with all that is good and bright and lovely in this world. Your loving sister, Barb.
Details surrounding the Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date, once the current Covid restrictions are lifted.
In memory of Helen (Tavia) Maheu, donations can be made to McKillop United Church (403-328-2703) or a charity of your choice.
