Dear Judy, Barb and family:
There are no words to adequately express my sorrow on Helen’s passing. As soon as we met we enjoyed each other’s company and spent a lot of time together at Rushdale. Helen was a lovely lady and very kind and caring. Helen lived a long and happy life, enjoying all the activities at Rushdale and especially taking great pleasure in the times she spent with all her extended family.
Now we must say goodbye and let her rest.
With my sympathy.
With heavy hearts Bryan and I wish to extend our heartfelt sympathies to each family member at the loss of our dear Helen. This fine lady of grace and wit will be fondly remembered be each member of our western family with loving thoughts and prayers. Peace be with you all………Maureen
Our sincere sympathies to Judy, Barb and all the family on the loss of a lovely lady. We were privileged to know Helen as we were neighbors of her late daughter Beth for over 40 years. During that time we shared in many happy events and enjoyed Helen’s friendship, charm and never ending smile. Our lives were enriched in knowing and watching her grandchildren and great grandchildren grow into such fine individuals. May warm memories of their loving Helen be of comfort always.
