My deepest condolences to all the From family. I’m certain Helen will be remembered in so many way and for so many reasons. I never had the pleasure to meet Helen but she is remembered here by her garden and her beautiful peonies.

Although I only knew Helen for a short while at Rosedale/Chartwell, I enjoyed her company very much at Eucher on Thursdays and Mexican Train on Fridays. Helen was a person of great courage and she never gave up during her her pain and suffering. I will miss her. My sincere condolences to her family.

my deepest condolences to the From Family. I personally was very pleased to have known Helen, she gave great tips on handling the Union office,> Our immediate connection 21 years ago was one of a kind.

Rest in peace Helen, no more pain.
