Rex and family, Aunt Olive and family,
So sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. The last time I saw Helen was at Uncle Ed’s funeral and now they are together in the haven of rest. It was so nice to see her after many years. My thoughts and prayers are with you all now and in the days ahead. God bless you.
Jordan, Susanne and Maggie
Susanne and I are deeply saddened over Helen’s passing, our thoughts are with Rex, Sherri, Roxanne, Nan, siblings, and all the grandchildren in these times. Helen was the Aunt I never had, unconditionally accepted into their family as one of their own, words can’t describe how appreciative I am for that and all the good times had over the past decade.
We can only take solace now that you are at peace, the past few years have been trying, you truly showed us what it is to endure, love and have hope. While gone you won’t be forgotten, thank you for everything Helen.
Wayne and nadya gooding
To a dear soul whom nadya and i loved very much. Helen in many ways was a true lady and real treasure to those who knew her. Helen’s legacy of kindness and love to those in her life was a true testimony of her character. She was a loving mother and wonderful wife to her husband Rex. They were together 50 years and we certainly can understand how much our brother will miss his mate. We want to lift the family up in our prayers and be of support in this trying time.
Steve, Andrea, Olive and Alice Barry
Rex, Sherri, Roxanne and the boys, it’s so sad aunt Helen is gone. She was a kind and loving soul. I have beautiful memories of her as a child. Andrea and I were so happy that she got to meet Olive this summer along your great adventure back home. Lots of Love
