It is with great sadness we lost our beautiful mother May1, 2020 to Cancer.
Helen was born on her grandparents trap line near Split Lake, Manitoba.
Mom was a very loving person, adopting new family members with those that she got close to. Growing up mom learned how to survive in the bush, being raised with her grandparents. Mom was a twin, her brother passed when they were born. She loved playing bingo, the house games were her favourite. Mom deeply loved her kids, her hunny, and the love she had for her grandchildren, Greatgrandchildren was immeasurable. Mom had many friends and colleagues over the years, who she never forgot We ask for friends and family to join us at a later date for her celebration of Life. Ekosi!
