January 10, 2014 – Calgary, AB
It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my wife Helen on Friday, January 10, 2014. When people asked Helen her age she always replied “30 and a bit and the bit is my own business” and so it shall remain.
Helen was a long time member of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Associated Canadian Travelers and was a past president. For many years she was a receptionist for Hale Optical and later years for Canadian Freightways. She was a wonderful companion, a terrific mother and a devoted wife for sixty-nine years.
In addition to her husband Douglas, she leaves to mourn her sons Douglas (Rose Marie), Daniel (Celine) and Timothy (Stefanie); her grandchildren, Karey MacLean (Dale) of Regina, Dr. Dan MacLean (Dr. Lynn) of Woodland, California and Jaysen and Brett MacLean of Port Alberni, BC. Helen was predeceased by her parents; two sisters Irene Urquhart and Alberta England; two brothers George Marks and Dr. Jim Marks.
At Helen’s request there will be no service. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
