Grace Helm passed away on February 16, 2019 at the age 79, surrounded by her family. Grace was a generous person who freely shared her love and laughter with all that were blessed to have known her. Even as Alzheimer’s disease took its toll on her body and mind, she continued to live life to the fullest, bringing joy to the staff and residents of Salem Manor in Leduc. Although her loving nature, beautiful smile and contagious laugh will continue to live on in our memories, she will be greatly missed by us all.
Grace is survived by her loving husband Norman of 59 years; her children Cathy Nehring (Reid), Janice MacDonald, Shauna Helm, and Bob Helm (Deneen); her grandchildren Tara Persson (Glenn), Stacy Nehring (April), Tyson Nehring (Renee), Deidra MacDonald, Travis MacDonald, Chad Helm, Brianna Helm and Landin Helm, and her great grandchildren Seth, Grace & Luke Persson, Ethan Pelletier, Brooke & Caleb Nehring and Memphis MacDonald. Also left to mourn her passing are her sisters and brothers- in-law, Leona & Burnell Perrault, Flo Sinclair & Ernie Christman.
Grace was predeceased by her parents Murdo & Freda Sinclair; siblings Joyce Christman, Carol Kruper, Murdo Sinclair, David Sutherland, Don Sinclair and grandson RJ Nehring.
