Helen and William accepted Jesus as Saviour after seeing their oldest son’s life change soon after giving his life to the Lord. They moved to Warman, Sask., and served Warman MB as deacons. In retirement, they moved to Luther Heights, Saskatoon. After losing William, her three sons, and a granddaughter, Helen’s grief was overwhelming. She cried out to God and was comforted in a way she couldn’t fully describe. She often talked of heaven. Helen cared for the flowers at Luther Heights. She spent many hours knitting and crocheting sweaters, mittens, socks and blankets for children in need. In her last months, Helen enjoyed reading her Bible, looking at photo albums and doing crosswords. Her longing for heaven grew with her dementia.
