On November 19, 2021, in Nanaimo, BC, Helen passed away peacefully with her daughters present after a battle with cancer.
Helen is survived by her daughters, Cindy (Wayne) Taraschuk and Sherry-Lynn (Marek) Suchanec, grandchildren, Grayson (Brady), Landon (Jenna), and brother Wally (Louise) Joba. She was predeceased by her husband David in May 1997.
Helen was born on March 2, 1936 in Brokenhead, MB. She married David on October 1, 1960. They welcomed their two daughters and raised the family in West St. Paul, MB. She worked hard her whole life up to her retirement as an accounts clerk for the City of Winnipeg. For many years she lovingly cared for David during his illness.
She held so many interests and hobbies in her retirement years. She loved to travel, and had been to many countries around the world.
Above all, she loved her God Jehovah and dedicated her life to him in 1951. She devoted innumerable hours of her life telling others about Jehovah and his word the Bible. She unwaveringly looked forward to her paradise hope, where she will be healthy and reunited with her friends and family. (Rev 21:3,4)
Helen and the family appreciated the flowers, cards, gifts, texts and phone calls that she received. She was so touched, and wanted to thank everyone for their thoughtfulness.
Cremation has taken place, and interment is planned in the spring. A memorial service via Zoom is planned.
