Hélène was very passionate about her family, friends and family traditions. She was an amazing elementary school teacher for 37 years, touching the lives of all who walked through her classroom.

The family would like to express their appreciation to the ICU staff at Health Sciences North for their kind and compassionate care. As per her wishes, there will be no visitation or service. A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
