Helen passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 5, 2021, with her family by her side. Born December 23, 1925, Helen grew up in Newmarket before moving to Toronto in her teens. She and her family moved to the house they built in Caledon in the 70’s where she resided for the rest of her life.
Helen could be found in the mornings with a cup of coffee, looking out the patio doors into her back field where deer, fox, wild turkeys and various other creatures would wander by. She loved spending time with her family, gardening, looking after horses and the various other livestock they kept. She loved taking long drives with her husband Bob to wherever the car wanted to go. Her life was filled with being the quintessential mother and grandmother. While primarily a stay-at-home mom, Helen, during WWII did “war work” and also worked for several years after the war at Remington Arms where she assembled and test fired rifles.
Helen was pre-deceased by her husband Robert (Bob), her children: Carol, Ron and Sharron, her brothers: Ed, Keith and Ross, her sister Lorna, and her grandson Michael.
She will be greatly missed by her son Doug (Dana), her nephew Ross, her brother Bob (Marie), her grandchildren: Derek (Lisa), Brent (Maija), Ashley, Nadalen (Dana), Angela and Carolyn, her great grand-children: Holden, Phoebe and Eleanor, and her extended family and friends.
