Helen and her family immigrated to Winkler, Man., in 1926. She accepted the Lord at 14 and was baptized at 19. She met Albert in Winnipeg. After they married, they moved to the parents’ farm in Landmark, Man., later to Niverville, Man., and finally to Abbotsford, B.C. in 1971, where they joined Bakerview MB Church. Helen was a caring wife and mother, supporting her husband, working hard alongside him, and providing a wonderful home environment for her 5 children. When her nest emptied, Helen enjoyed more than 25 years volunteering at the MCC Thrift Shop and making lasting friendships. She lived her faith and impressed on her children the importance of accepting Christ and being born again. Her prayers for her family were constant. She was known for her love, great cooking, and welcoming home. She accepted her children and grandchildren unconditionally.
