Carol LeHeup passed away after a courageous battle with a rare blood disorder. She was predeceased by her parents, Eric and Emelie Helmer.
She is survived by her sister, Ellen deBruyn (Bruce), her brother, Bruce Helmer (Gerry), nieces Christie deBruyn, Deana deBruyn (Stephen), Chris Syms (Bob), nephew Rowan Helmer (Marcie), great nieces and nephews Cory deBruyn (Kendall), Courtney deBruyn (Dan), Tara, Bobby and Brooke Taylor, Colin and Erika Syms, Moira Helmer, and great great nephew Dawson Maitland.
Carol had a passion for life and her community. She was an active participant in several groups: mah-jongg club, North Surrey Chicks, Ste. Michelle Wine Girls, White Rock Market with her Classi Creations, Kent Street Computer Club, White Rock City Hall coworkers, and cousin get togethers.
She was an avid supporter of the arts and enjoyed watching plays, tending her herb garden, making and sipping red wine, solving the Province crossword puzzle, and listening to Elvis.
She loved watching Moira grow up and getting to know her great great nephew Dawson.
Celebration of Life will be held later in the spring.
