Lavoie, Helen

It is with heavy hearts that we said goodbye to our mother Helen Mary Lavoie (nee Leblanc) on Thursday, November 11, 2021, in her 88th year. She passed peacefully surrounded by family at Health Sciences North in Sudbury. Beloved wife of the late Roger Lavoie, loving mother of Roger “Roddy” Lavoie, Robert “Bobby” Lavoie (predeceased), and Kathryn Lavoie Kant (Robert Kant). Proud grandmother of Raymond (Chantal), David (Rachel), Dara, Riley (Farhad) and Tommy. Great grandmother of 8 and great-great grandmother of 3. Helen leaves behind her life long and dearest friends Norma and Don Mousseau, Bernie Bouchard, Diane Vincent, and many others. She lived a devoted life caring for her family and extended that love to anyone in need of a home. She was known for her smart and witty comments that always left us in tears of laughter until the very end. Her hour-long back scratches and tender affection will be greatly missed by all. Strawberry picking and feeding the “chippies” in the backyard will always be memories we will cherish. The words to her original song “Two Little Bugs” will forever be engrained in our hearts. She is a very special woman that will deeply be missed. A celebration of life will take place in the coming summer months with dates to come. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made directly to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada. A special thank you goes to all the staff at HSN and all the health care workers that provided their support to keep our mother in her home.
