It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother Helen Jane Anderson on February 7, 2018, at 76 years of age. Helen was predeceased by her parents Eleanor and Gordon Rodgers and her brothers William and Philip Rodgers.
She is survived by her children Debbie (Tony) Fillion, of Clive, AB, Brenda Dunlop, Peter Fillion, Lisa (Tim) Posynick and Kelly (Russell) Baird of Enderby, BC, 14 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren and her brother Fred Rodgers as well as many relatives and friends.
Helen was born February 10, 1941 in Ingelheart, Ontario and spent her early years there until first relocating to northern Alberta and then settling down permanently in Enderby in the early 70’s, where she raised five children, whilst working as a care aid.
Among her passions were her family, her roses and the legion. She was always ready with a cup of tea for any visitors who stopped by and was quick to fill you in on the latest news she had just heard on the radio. Any chance to spend time with family was important to her and she loved baking with her grandchildren. Although she was typically quiet and reserved, she had an unexpected sense of humor that would make everyone laugh as she made a hilarious comment or observation. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her.
Her life was celebrated during an intimate service that was held February 15th at Fischer’s Funeral Home in Salmon Arm, BC.
