obits__0000_Helen HarmsHelen was excited about her new school and new challenges when her family moved to Vancouver. Many experiences taught her the power of relying on God’s strength and timing. Helen’s faith continued to grow after she had her own family. She worked full-time at the Chilliwack (B.C.) Public Library and volunteered at church. Just as her own grandmother had impressed on Helen the importance of prayer, Helen’s grandchildren appreciated the depth and persistence of her prayers. She loved to read books that increased her faith. She was a talented seamstress and flower arranger. She selflessly gave her time to family and friends. Even as cancer and pain spread through her body, she continued to focus on God’s goodness and love.
