It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved aunt. She was born on a Saturday, October 9, 1915 to Isaac and Cora Alice Florence Moore, nee Harris, at Turtle Valley, B.C. Helen grew up on the family farm in the Turtle Valley – Chase Creek area along with her 8 siblings and received her education in a little school house in Turtle Valley, a few miles from her home.
After a few years working on the family farm, Helen moved to Calgary where she attained a nursing degree. Then her father became ill and she returned to care for him. Her father passed away in 1957 and Helen remained on the farm with her brother, Albert, until she had a hip operation in Kamloops hospital. She never returned to the farm, but moved to Parkview Place in Chase where she resided with her sister, Florence, for many happy years. In December 2007 Helen required more health care and was moved to Mt Ida Mews in Salmon Arm where she received the most loving care until the date of her death on November 12th, 2015
There will be a memorial tea held for Helen at the Creekside Hall in Chase, B.C. on Thursday, November 19 at 2:30 p.m.
