It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Helen Noble (nee Andrews), in her 104th year, at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital, following a brief illness.
Helen was a caring companion to the late William James Wright, beloved mother of the late Hazel Lyon (the late Kenneth Lyon), and cherished grandmother of Heather Murphy (Kevin), and Katherine Brugel.
Born and raised in Toronto, Helen’s passion for music led her to Conservatory studies in piano and voice. She was also a walking nutrition manual, from years of reading on the subjects of health and wellness. When not serving up a bowl of nutritious homemade soup, she could be found tending to her greenhouse where she grew ingredients for the best salads around. When asked the secret to her longevity, Helen would answer “Don’t smoke, eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and enjoy everything in moderation”.
Helen will be remembered as a warm, sweet, and fiercely intelligent lady. We love her, and we miss her.
The family would like to thank Douglas Crossing and the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital staff, with special thanks to Dr. Burridge.
A private graveside ceremony will be held.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer society are appreciated.
