She enjoyed being at home until she decided to go back to work in 1974 where she started at Simpson’s in the Hillcrest mall and retired at the age of 71 from The Bay. Helen was also an active volunteer for York Central Hospital for over 25 years. Once she decided to retire from The Bay, she drove for CHATS for about 10 years. She will be greatly missed for her zest for life. A celebration of life will be held later at Thornhill Presbyterian Church, 271 Centre St, Thornhill, ON L4J 1G5. Please consider a donation to the Church in lieu of flowers. Please refer to the Marshall Funeral Home website, for future arrangements.

My condolences to Helen’s family. I worked with Helen at Simpson’s and always admired her confidence in all situations. She was a wonderful mentor and will be missed by all who knew her but she left wonderful memories! Rest In Peace .

I have great memories of being at Aunt Helen's home from the time I was a little girl, whether it was lovely dinner's, playing in the back yard or just sitting in the living room. I know she wasn't very happy to be on earth the last few years but she always perked up if we visited. Elizabeth, Richard and John, I am truly sorry for you in the loss of your beloved Mom and for all the grandchildren and great-grandchildren too. She was a devoted mother, grand-mother, had a great dry sense of humour, infectious smile and a wonderful independence that I admired. These photos are from her 90th birthday and I have no idea why the one is upside down but it's not an easy fix
My condolences to you all.
