Deepest condolences to Helen's family.  Helen was a great lady, with a good sense of humor.  I went with my Dad a few times to visit her in the Nursing home.  She was always very cheerful, talkative and would laugh and joke right along with my father. R.I.P.  Helen.

Heartfelt sympathies go out to Helen's family and Friends. She was a very vibrant woman who will be missed by everyone. Her passing will leave a huge void in many people's lives. I was so blessed to have known her since I was in public school, spending sleepovers at her house with Bertha. Sending healing hugs, and prayers to her family, as they prepare to say good-bye!! Heaven gained another angel from Tehkummah!

Dear Andy:  We will never forget your Mum.  We'd talk and laugh and giggle about all the everyday things in our lives.  We remember the first time we met Helen, her great big smile, her kindness and her warm welcome.  We used to laugh with her about the time we paid an unannounced visit to the farm and there she was plucking chickens .... feathers flying everywhere! Our loving thoughts are with you all.

There were so many connections between our families for a very long time. Helen and Joe were the very best of people. I trained a 4H calf at the farm one summer. If I stayed a little longer and helped in the garden there was a sweet reward at the end. Forever giving of herself for no reward but for the joy of others. My heart goes out to all her family, safe travels Helen.

My sincerest sympathies from my girls and of course myself.  Helen was
the Godmother of my three girls Janine, Pamela and Adrienne.  Helen
often sent birthday cards to the girls and always asked about them.
I often talked to Helen on the phone.  This sure has come as a shock
to myself and my girls.  Our sincerest sympathies, Helen was really
a wonderful person.  She will be sadly missed. My personal sympathies Mary David
