ANDERSON, Helen Margaret
Our mum, well into her 104th year, and after a rich, well-lived life, has gone from us. She was the eldest and much-loved daughter of the late Joseph W. Weldon and Gertrude Mitchell and was predeceased by her loving husband, Colin K. Anderson and her two brothers and one sister. She will be greatly missed by her children, Duncan (Carol), Linda, Colin (Melody) and Susan (Rob), as well as her grandchildren, Will and Beth, Lindsay and Laurel, Ben, Nick and Emily, as well as her four (at last count) great-grandchildren. Born and raised in Westmount, Quebec, Mum and Dad moved from their large family home in 1992 into a smaller, more manageable house in Perth to be close to their younger daughter, Susan, and her family. Our deep gratitude goes out to Mum's devoted caregivers whose professionalism and loving care allowed her to remain in her own comfortable home until the very end. A special thanks to our heard caregiver, Clare, whose attentions to Mum knew not limits. Over Mum's dining room table is a sign reading "Aged to Perfection", and that she certainly was. We will be celebrating Mum's life at 11:00 A.M. on Sunday, March 3rd, 2013 at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 15 Gore St. W. Perth (613-267-3765. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Grace Dart Hospital, 6085 Rue Sherbrooke E., Montreal, QC H1N 1C2., the Great War Memorial Hospital, Perth or the local Salvation Army.
