Helen will be greatly missed. We had such amazing times together as we spent valued moments sharing about the love of God.

Helen had a passion for the things of God and demonstrated it.
She also had a caring spirit and a love for people.
She is in a better place with her maker.
May her soul rest in eternal peace.

I learned with sadness the passing of my soul sister, Helen Lewis. I have known Helen since our student days at the University of Alberta in the 1970s. She was one of trailblazers who together with other members of our community fought and made Edmonton a better place for peoples of African and Caribbean origin. She was also a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ. She will be missed. May Her Soul Rest In Peace.

I am grateful to have known and worked with Helen for many years as a colleague and a friend. She was a giving person, a brilliant mind, and an educator with the true spirit of service leadership. We are all bettered for having met Helen, especially those lucky enough to experience her classroom. Her legacy will be exponential, for she has given herself away to countless educators and learners– we have been gifted her compassion, her empathy, her strength, and her grace. Helen, in the years to come, when we think of you and remember you and miss you, I hope you know that we will remember to ‘give you away’ as we pass along the lessons you have taught us to others.

I was privileged to know Helen as a neighbor, and classmate for many years. Helen was very quiet and was an avid reader. She also loved the Lord Jesus and was a true disciple.

I am saddened that she left us so quickly and quietly. However, I know she is very happy to be in her heavenly home in the presence of her loving Savior.

Helen will be greatly missed by many people. I am happy I was blessed to have known her.

To Helen I say, your task here on earth is over. Your new life has begun. It is good night for us here, but will forever be good morning there in heaven. No goodbyes, just until we meet again on the beautiful side of heaven.

Helen will be remembered by her colleagues at NorQuest College for her unwavering dedication to the success of learners taking classes in the English as a Second Language (ESL) program. She approached teaching and learning in ways that motivated learners, mentees, and colleagues.
Her own learning journey didn’t end with the completion of her post-graduate studies. Helen furthered her knowledge in Essential Skills through formal training and became an Essential Skills Practitioner. Her innovation in and contribution to the world adult ESL and Essential Skills in Alberta were recognized by her colleagues at NorQuest College as well as colleagues from Alberta Teachers of English as a Second Language (ATESL). Helen was awarded the Dawn Seabrook de Vargas Fellowship through ATESL for her work.

I will remember her for her powerful voice, contagious laugh, and gracious smile that reflected who she was: A woman with inner power, strength, and love.
