She is also survived by 22 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great- grandchildren. Helen and Joseph retired from the family farm in Kayville to Regina in 1956. Her most precious moments were spent amongst her family. She so enjoyed cooking and baking, was a gracious hostess to family and friends. Helen was a very spiritual person and it was in Regina she became a devoted member of St. George Orthordox Cathedral and the Ladies Auxiliary and is considered the most senior member of the Parish. In 1996 Helen moved to Kelowna, BC to be close to her daughters, residing in Sutherland Hills Rest Home.
