HELEN CHATFIELD (KALIAN)
Born: Jan 02, 1929
Date of Passing: Apr 11, 2021Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
January 2, 1929 April 11, 2021
Mom will be forever remembered by daughter Deborah and husband Blair MacAulay, granddaughters, Justina Cruickshank, Kate Logan (MacAulay) and husband Mike Logan, great-grandsons, Hamish and Oliver; son Al Chatfield and Cherie, grandson Dustin Chatfield (Jen) and granddaughter Ashley Chatfield (Tyson); along with many nieces and nephews from Winnipeg and Hamilton, ON and British Columbia.
Mom was predeceased by her loving husband Mel Chatfield in 2013, her parents, Daniel and Justina Kahlian, and daughter-in-law Lynne Chatfield, as well as all brothers and sisters from both sides of the family.
In Mom's 92 years she experienced so much and was extremely strong.
A caring, loving woman, putting everyone before herself, always listening to everyone's problems and offering advice that provided a positive perspective and usually ended in a laugh. She loved to make everything from scratch, enjoyed knitting, gardening and most of all teaching those around her those skills to enjoy life and go with what life hands you in stride.
She was a very independent woman. Mom and Dad lived in their East Kildonan home all their married lives where Mom stayed until 2019 before moving to River Ridge II Assisted Living, which Mom loved with the amazing staff.
Mom was as an inspiration to her children and grandchildren, to show strength, and look after each other together as family.
The family would like to thank Mom's nurse Ellen and both Dr. Bergman and Dr. Hamlin from Concordia who showed compassion and understanding at a very difficult time. Also, we would like to thank Mom's neighbours Eric and Mike who helped her so much at her home before moving to River Ridge.
A private service will be held on Saturday, April 17, 2021.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Manitoba Lung Association.
We love you Mom and Dad,
