Helen and Jim were married on a cold January day in 1948. They started their married life farming near Lang, SK. It was here Jerry was born, Joanne was born after they moved into Lang.  A few years later Jim took on a job at the Milestone Co-op, so they then moved to Milestone.  Helen worked in the grocery business there, she started at the L&B Store, and when the Co-op started a grocery store she moved on to there.  She remained there until retirement. Helen curled in earlier years, but golfing became her passion, she could never wait till spring arrived so she could get back on the course, and of course get the garden and flowers planted too, her flowers were beautiful! She golfed right up till her last summer at 89 years old. She will be so missed by her family and friends, she was one great Mom, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother. The family would like to thank all Mom’s caregivers at the Weyburn General Hospital, Dr. Mary McCollam, and her Palliative Care nurse, our angel, Jenny who helped us along the way.
