PETERS, Helen Lorraine (nee Grant) - Passed quietly and fearlessly Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at the age of 97. Helen had moved to Ottawa to spend her last weeks surrounded by her family. Helen lived a life of unfailing love, hard work and devotion to her family, teaching us all that to "live well" means to stay active in body and mind and keep balance in one's life. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Earl Hamilton Peters, and will be missed by her children Lowell Peters (Liz) and Barbara Nishimoto (Elmer). Adored and cherished by her granddaughters Launi Fotopoulos (Steve) and Kari-Lynn Nishimoto (Chris Cullen). Loving Great-Grandmother to Stavros, Antonio, Amelia and Imogen and much loved by her extended family. A special thank you to Rita Ferrazzutti and the Viera family for their friendship and neighbourly support through the years. A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at the Murray E. Newbigging Funeral Home, 733 Mt. Pleasant Rd., Toronto, with visitation one hour prior to the service. Due to allergies, no flowers please. As expressions of sympathy, donations to "the Hospice at May Court", 114 Cameron Avenue, Ottawa, ON K1S 0X1, where Helen received wonderful love and support would be greatly appreciated. Gram's exceptional caring and wisdom will be treasured always.
