We Remember


Passed away February 6, 2015 at the age of 84.  Survived by her five daughters: Shirley (Marv) Barg of Prince George, Carol (Dan) Enns of Kelowna, Pearl (Wilf) Pauls of Enderby, Jan (Don Bartell) of Sundre, AB, Cheryl (Ken) Marr of Victoria, 14 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren, brothers Ervin, Ed, Len, Arnie, Ron, and sisters Edna and Lenora.  Sadly predeceased by her husband Arthur and sister Anne.  Helen enjoyed tending her rose garden, sharing a meal with friends and travelling the world with her beloved Art.  Our mom was the most joyful when surrounded by her family.  She loved a good laugh and lived a life of gratitude. Trust in the care of her heavenly Father gave Mom peace in the present and hope for the future.  We will miss you, Mom.

    Several years back, my brother Marvin & I arrived very late to stay overnight @ Art & Helen’s place in Kelowna. We were served lunch @ such a late hour. What has always stayed with me and spoke to my heart is what Mrs. Reimer said:’It’s an honor to have you here.’It felt so good! What a wonderful person & precious mother to her girls. My sincere thoughts & prayers for the family.
