It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great grandmother, on Sunday, January 10th, 2021, 4 days shy of her 101st birthday.
A son could not want or wish for a greater and more loving mother and Helen had four of them. She showered us with love and affection in every facet of our lives. The great love of her life, our father, Warren/Dud, was taken from her too early and she has been without him these last 28 years (May, 1993).
Helen was born and raised in Toronto, at Danforth & Coxwell (Salmon Ave.) to parents Frances & Katherine Smith. She always said she had an enchanted and exciting life growing up in the east end.
Helen had a great zest for life, enjoying many different activities, ie. Curling, snowmobiling with her man, as well as dancing and hosting parties and family festivities. Later in life, she also travelled extensively with her cousin, June, to England and Florida. We nicknamed them Thelma & Louise, “two peas in a pod”.
Helen’s two favourite sayings were, “Have I told you lately that I love you” and “Don’t talk till I get back!”.
After spending most of her married life in Pickering, Ontario she moved to Kincardine in 2002. It was here that she enjoyed her twilight years.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Gurbin and all the caregivers/nurses at Trillium Court where Mom spent her last 3 years.
Predeceased by her parents Frances and Katherine Smith, brother Robert Bruce Smith, husband Warren Benjamin Everett, son James Everett and grandson Glenn Everett.
Survived by her sons, Robert (Bev) Everett, Peter (Sandra) Everett, Frank (Rebecca) Everett, grandchildren, Robin (Charles), James (Sarah), Larry (Tara), Christopher (Tobi), Robert (Mica), Tim (Marjolijn), Scott (Elizabeth), Cate (Matt) and Emily (Dana), Jayda (David) great-grandchildren, Kate, James and Rachel, Jessica, Rebecca, Melissa, Hannah and Samantha, Warren, Victor and River, Sylvie, Anja and Stella, Lucy and Teddy and Elle, Baie and Maisy as well as great-great-grandchild, Quinton.
Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life with family will be determined in the near future when it is safe to gather.
Interment at Duffin Meadows Cemetery in Pickering Ontario.
