  • Neil Collette says:

    Elain and family. What a loss for Kelowna! Helen was my neighbour in Balmoral for over ten years and will always be remembered as a great lady who loved “two fingers of rye with a small amount of ice!”. Her loss removes the living memory of early prairie pioneer life and the connection to ‘listening to war drums during the Northwest Rebellion’ as told to her by her own Grandmother many years ago. Helen will be missed, I send you all my condolences.

  • Gerry Cochrane says:

    I was saddened to hear about the passing of Aunt Helen (Wayne’s Aunt). We shared many good drinks of rye and water( I did my own water) and solved may problems together. it was a pleasure to visit with her, tour the new sights of Kelowna including the restaurants. We had many good times. A very special lady and friend. Gerry
