It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our wonderful Mother Helen on Oct. 27th, 2020, at the age of 90. Predeceased by her devoted husband of 55 years Don (2005). Loving Mother of Doug (Janine), Craig (Kathy), Janet (Robin), Carol (Paul) and Ann (Bruce). Beloved sister of Betty Harding. Grandmother to Shawn, Lindsey (Steve), Emma, Ethan, Matthew and Connor and great Grandmother to Caleb and Kyle.
Special thanks for the excellent care given to our Mom by the dedicated staff at the Newmarket Health Care Centre.
We couldn't have asked for a more selfless, kind Mother who always enjoyed helping others. We will miss her laughter, and over 100 sayings, such as "I'm on my way rejoicing", and "I'll see you in my dreams!" Our Mom was well known for her volunteer services at churches, canvassing for many different charities and as a volunteer coordinator for Meals on Wheels Scarborough. Whenever anyone did good deeds, she always said "you will be rewarded in Heaven", if that's the case, our Mom will be getting a gold star. God, you got a good one! After all her children were able to say goodbye, she left peacefully wearing her lipstick, ready to be greeted with open arms by our Dad. We miss you already Mom!
There will be a small family service held at Trinity Anglican Church Aurora, where donations can be made in her memory, or to a charity of your choice.
