HELMER, Lara Margaret Nicole
(nee Spencer )
January 5, 1981 – Vancouver, BC
November 13, 2016 – Calgary, AB
Lara Spencer Helmer chose to leave us on Sunday, November 13, 2016. She felt that she could no longer live in a world where bigotry and hatred prevail, where so many are bullied, shunned, and marginalized. Lara had a brilliant mind and was passionate about her favourite books, movies, and music. She embraced many fandoms with enthusiasm, and some of her happiest times were spent at Comic Expos and concerts. She was an extremely loyal friend to many wonderful people around the world. She loved animals and had a special rapport with them. Lara left a daughter, Alex Helmer; a sister, Karina Spencer; and parents, David and Sylvia Spencer, all of Calgary. She also left a sister and a brother-in-law, Irena Spencer and Rikard Andersson, of Ottawa; a sister, Tanya Spencer, of London, England; and many other loving relatives in British Columbia. In Lara's memory we suggest you play a game of fetch with your dog, have a good cuddle with your cat, hug those you love, read a good book, and listen to your favourite music. Give a smile and a kind word to someone who seems a bit different from you. We will be saying good bye to Lara at her family home on Sunday, November 27, 2016 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. For further information please contact McInnis and Holloway at (403) 256-9575.
