Helen was born September 10, 1925 in Selkirk, MB as one of ten children. She grew up in the Selkirk area and her adventurous side took her and sisters to Banff, AB. Helen worked in Banff and during this time met the love of her life, Robert. At the Warren household weekends were for friends and family; Helen loved to cook and entertain. Helen’s greatest passion was to travel with Robert and they enjoyed many snow bird years in Austin, TX and Scotsdale, AZ. Most of all Helen loved to be with her daughter Karen, as they enjoyed many outings together. She was a loving and devoted wife and mother, always placing her family’s needs before her own. She will be dearly missed by all those whose lives she touched.
