MORBERG, Helen Irene

April 12, 1929 – Hanna, Alberta
June 5, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Helen Irene Morberg, beloved wife of the late Elmer Morberg, of Calgary, AB, passed away on Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at the age of 89 years.

Helen grew up in Hanna, AB until she decided to move to Camrose and finally to Calgary where she met and married her beloved husband “Slim”. Over the years, she kept busy while being employed with McGavins Bakery, K-Mart and The Bay, all of which exemplified her customer service skills. Helen loved spending time outdoors; camping and fishing while listening to the peaceful chirping of her favorite animal; birds. No camping trip was complete for Helen without sitting around the campfire and roasting lots of hot dogs. Everyone knew Mom for her unrivaled coffee and cinnamon buns, which she would happily offer to guests in her household whenever she had the chance.

Helen is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Doreen and John Taylor of Calgary, AB, and Shirley and Ken Zimmerman of Olds, AB; two grandchildren, Brad (Janelle) Taylor, and Patty MacKenzie; and two great-grandchildren, Ty and Dakota. Helen is also survived by two sisters, Florence Cusitar and Jean Sturgess.

She was predeceased by her loving husband Slim and three sisters, Betty Robertson, Marge Davis and Maxine Phillips.
