Fondly remembered by cousin Mary Jackman. Helen’s love of sports started in school where she was a track and field champion. In later years she became an accomplished curler, playing skip and leading several teams in league play and competitive provincial bonspiels. Her passion for playing sports was matched only by her enthusiasm for Toronto sports teams, with the Blue Jays being her most beloved. Helen and Don were season ticket holders for the early years of the Blue Jays at Exhibition Stadium. Helen was an active member of the Pinedale and Greenbank United Church communities, volunteering with the UCW. She loved music and sang in the Lake Region Community Choir in Florida, where she and Don spent the winter months. She loved sewing, knitting, and quilting; new additions to the family all received a soft warm blanket. Easy to make friends, Helen’s address book spanned the globe from South Africa to Texas to British Columbia. She could be found every Saturday morning in Greenbank with her coffee klatch regulars. Her phone was seldom idle! Private arrangements entrusted to the THORNE FUNERAL HOME, 109 Street South in Cannington (705-432-2672). A Celebration of Life for Helen will take place in the spring. If desired, memorial donations can be made to the Port Perry Hospital Foundation. Memories, photos and condolences may be shared at www.thornefuneralhome.ca “Bye For Now”
