She had a rewarding career as a registered nurse and loved her summers at Shuswap Lake and winters in Yuma.   She was a very special lady with a twinkle in her eye, she will be dearly missed. A very special thanks to Dr. Guy Dewet and the wonderful staff at Mt. Ida Mews and Shuswap Lodge in Salmon Arm.   They all provided the best care and support a family could ask for. A memorial service will be held in the spring to celebrate Helen’s life. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Salvation Army or a charity of your choice. As Mom would say, “Keep smiling, be happy, and know the strength of prayer.”   God Bless you Mom.


  1. We will be thinking of you on Saturday and send our love and prayers as you celebrate the life of your wonderful Mom. God’s blessings to all of you.

  2. Dear family of Helen,
    I am sending my deepest condolences for the loss of my sweet friend. When I last came to Shuswap Lodge to see Helen, she was gone and no one was allowed to tell me where she went. I had no contact name or number either – even though I met both of Helen’s daughters. I often thought of your mom and loved the visits I had with her at the Lodge. She was a lovely lady and made my job at the Pharmacy at Safeway rewarding. She will be missed I am sure by your family – may the memories you all share help you through this difficult time. I would love to be able to celebrate with you in the Spring when you decide to arrange something.
    Take care,
    Ellie xo
