A devout Catholic, Helen spent time each day in prayer and always had a bottle of holy water waiting and ready to sprinkle on the people who mattered most in her life. Helen was a wonderful caregiver to all and took great pride in her work as an RCW, dedicating 10 years to the service to the seniors of Wedgewood Manor. A loyal friend, Helen was always ready to share a hot cup of tea and lend a listening ear. She enjoyed a good laugh, a shared meal, and putting on her dancing shoes. Helen was an active member of various community groups throughout her life. Helen was the proudest of her children and grandchildren and she made her love for them known daily.

In the late 1980's, a group of citizens from the East Prince area met to discuss the possibility of establishing a co-operative funeral home. Two such homes were operating successfully in Prince County, namely the West Prince Funeral Home in Palmer Road and the Evangeline Funeral Home in Urbainville. As a result, on January 24th, 1989, the East Prince Funeral Co-operative Ltd. was formed.
