April 26, 1921 – August 4, 2013
Rammo, Helen – Passed away on August 4, 2013 at the age of 92. Helen was born in Tallinn, Estonia and immigrated to Canada in 1949. She is predeceased by her husband Erik and parents Johannes and Anna. She is survived by her brother Vallo (Maimo) and nieces Kristin Glover and Vivian Harvey. A true lady, Helen will be remembered for her entertaining stories, her wisdom and amazing sense of humour. She enriched so many lives through her gentle ways and cherished her Estonian roots. Helen was absolutely devoted to her daughter, Marina and her dear granddaughter Camille. Helen was an avid reader and believed in cultivating friendships from all walks of life. She passed on her legacy in many ways. Helen will be fondly remembered and missed in Concordia, especially by her “nosy” neighbour of 46 years, Hildegard Walter. Friends will be received by the family on Thursday evening from 7-9 p.m. at the Cattel, Eaton & Chambers Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas where Helen’s service will be held on Friday at 1 p.m. Donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
Mom, please keep Camille and I under your wings.
Marina + Camille, your mom (GRANDMA) was the cutest + sweetest person I ever met! My thoughts are with you both.
We are so very sad at the loss of your lovely mother and grandmother. She was a very sweet, gentle and kind lady and it was a privilege to know her. Our deepest condolences.
Gail, Tom and Family
Our deepest sympathies to Helen’s family and friends. She was an absolutely lovely lady.
Hello Marina, sorry to read about your Mom in the paper. Ingvar told me last week that she was not well. Sounds like she was an amazing lady to all who knew her. We would have come to the visitation, but are leaving for a camping to Maine. I still have great memories of working with you at Earl Kitchener. Our thought and prayers are with you. Ken & Mary-Jane
To Marina and Camille
What a deep loss you both must be feeling on the passing of such a remarkable mother and grandmother.
I have admired Helen for her courage, intelligence, wry sense of humour, and very loving spirit since our friendship began three years ago.
My heartfelt condolences to you both at this time and in the months ahead.

So very sorry to read of the passing of your beloved mother Helen. A true gem, and every inch a lady. I was glad and honoured to have known her during our “Parkside High” years together. With deepest sympathies, Charice.
I was deeply saddened at the loss of your mom and grandmother. You may remember me as her room mate while she had her hip surgery at St. Joe’s, I having the knee replacements. Your mom and I spent hour upon hour talking there at the hospital and keeping in contact after coming home and of course I even visited her lovely home. She loved the both of you so deeply. Reading all the comments that have been said, nothing more could be added or taken away. All are true. My regret is that I just noticed this and did not get to come to see Helen one last time, or the both of you.
May God Bless and Comfort you both, Eydie Zuk
