HÉLÈNE MARCOTTE passed suddenly but peacefully in her home with her husband by her side in Coaldale, AB on Saturday, September 24, 2022 at the age of 60 years.

She is lovingly remembered by her husband, Ian Anderson of Coaldale; her children, Evan (Jenna) Huizing of Sherwood Park, Sara (Adam) Savidant of Sparwood, Denis Huizing (Jacalyn  Moore) of Lethbridge; her six beloved grandchildren, Lucas, Royce, Tyson, Edwin, Clara and Peyton; her parents, Claude Marcotte and Monique Ricard of Grosses-Roches, QC; and her siblings, Guy (Laura) Marcotte of Greenwood, NS and Diane Marcotte of Dartmouth, NS.

Hélène was known by many names but most often as Mom and MéMé. Her greatest accomplishment was raising her 3 children. Hélène was a nurturer who loved any little one who wandered into her life, especially her grandchildren. She was a selfless individual that accepted all for who they were: a true down-to-earth individual who only ever longed for one thing, her next opportunity to travel east to the shores of the Saint Lawrence and her hometown of Grosses-Roches. Hélène lived her life to the fullest and always put others first, she never missed an opportunity to remind everyone of how special they were by contacting them on every birthday, anniversary, and special occasion. Her joie de vivre and infectious laugh brightened the day of anyone who had the pleasure of sharing it with her.

There are not enough words to describe the loss of those who are now without their Gypsy Queen.

I love you forever, I like you for always, as long as I’m living my Mommy you’ll be.

Hélène’s family invites you to join them in a celebration of her life. A service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB on Saturday, October 1, 2022 at 11:00 A.M. The service will be livestreamed and may be accessed via Hélène’s obituary on the Cornerstone website.

A reception will follow directly thereafter at the KINSMEN PICNIC SHELTER, 16 Avenue and 23rd St., Coaldale, AB. A group picture will be MANDATORY for all in attendance around 2:00 P.M. in the shelter’s courtyard as she would have wanted.

In lieu of flowers, contributions for final expenses are welcomed and appreciated as this will assist the family with a second service in Grosses-Roches, Quebec.
