May 22, 1938 -  January 17, 2019

BENKO, Helen

Passed away peacefully in her sleep at Lakeridge Health Oshawa on January 17, 2019 at the age of 80. Predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Ernie (2017). Cherished mother of Attilla, Clara, Susan and the late Ginny (2009). She will also be dearly missed by her 10 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Those who knew Helen will remember her for her kindness and generosity as well as her tremendous sense of humour. She was devoted to her family and friends and had an “open door” policy in her early child-rearing years. As per her wishes, there will be no formal funeral service, cremation will take place and a celebration of Helen’s life will be held in the future. The family extend their heartfelt appreciation to the caring and compassionate nursing staff of 4F at Lakeridge Health Oshawa for professionalism shown to Helen and her family-words cannot express. Donations to Alzheimer Society or Canadian Diabetes Society would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to THORNTON CEMETERY & FUNERAL CENTRE, 1200 Thornton Road North, Oshawa, (South of Taunton Road and off of Dryden Blvd, 905-579-6787).
