Helen was a wonderful cook and loved to make meals for her family that were so important to her.  She will be remembered as a kind, caring and giving person.  She loved to spend time in her garden creating memorable displays of flowers.  More recently she spent most of her time, caring for her loving husband Dave.  Her devotion to him is greatly admired by her family.  

We would like to thank the staff at Groves Park Lodge for the wonderful care that was provided to our Mom.  The staff is continuing to support our family in providing great care to our Dad, Dave.  We would also like to thank the caring staff at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital who cared for our Mom prior to her passing.
