We announce the passing of Helena Owczarek at the Gimli Betel Home on July 29, 2022 at the age of 98.

She is survived by her sister Maria Krupnik, daughter Zofia (Gilles), son Edward; grandchildren, Stephen (Katrina), Gillian, Kevin (Michelle), Kyle (Ashley), Nicole (James) and Thomaz and also nine great-grandchildren.
Mom was born and married in Poland and had her four children when she was asked to come to Canada and help with the care of her aging parents. Helena and Walter settled on the farm in Fraserwood. Both parents were happy on the farm while mom enjoyed her garden and flower beds and helping with the mixed farm they had. Always a celebration when family and friends come by.
