Passed away peacefully on the first day of summer,
Saturday, June 21, 2014 at the age of 88. Helen had
an amazing will to live and she was grateful she
could enjoy her beautiful garden this spring. She was
born in Fleet, AB and lived in Salmon Arm, Vernon,
Penticton, New Westminster & Burnaby as a nurse’s
aide in psychiatric health care before settling in Port
Coquitlam, BC for the last 48 years. She was a hard
worker with a very kind heart and she loved her
family, her garden and traveling.
Sadly missed by her husband, Ralph, daughter,
Tana Woodward (Mike), son, Robert (Bob),
grandchildren, Jesse Greenwood, Kaitlyn Kehler
(Brian), Russell Jones and Isaac Jones, her sister,
Olga Sieben and many nieces and nephews. Helen
was recently predeceased by her brother, Frank
Quast and nephew, Randall Quast.
The family wishes to thank Dr. John Edworthy,
the wonderful nurses and staff with the Tri-Cities
Palliative Team and at McKenney Creek Hospice. In
her memory, donations may be made to the Ridge
Meadows Hospice Society.
