Her achievements were many - including Salesperson of the year (1965) and being granted a Fellowship of the Real Estate Institute of Canada (F.R.I.) (1970). Mom once again had her own business - Helen V. Baldwin Real Estate. She was also a member of Career Panel Lecture Series at Sheridan College, President of the Zonta Club of Hamilton and President of the St. Ann's Catholic Women's League.
