September 1, 1918 to August 10, 2014
Inez Helen Currie, nee, Love was called home to be with the Lord on Sunday, Aug 10, 2014 in her 96th year. Helen is survived by her loving family, a son Bruce (Bobbie) and granddaughters Meghan and Tanya (Brendan).
Helen was born Sept 1, 1918 in Oyen, Alberta. She attended business college in Saskatoon in 1935 where she trained in bookkeeping. She married John Arthur (Art) in 1942 in Saskatoon. During the war, Helen lived in Victoria, Vancouver, Montreal and Ottawa all locations where Art was stationed. After the war in 1946 they moved to Vonda, Sask. where they welcomed the birth of their two sons, Bruce and Glen. In 1955 the family moved to Kitimat, B.C. where Helen became a travel agent at Kitimat Travel and Art became Municipal Manager. In 1976 Helen established her own travel agency, “Wings Travel” in Kitimat. Her position as a travel agent brought a wonderful opportunity to travel the world. In 1977 they retired to Kelowna, B.C. for the summers and to Mesa, Arizona in the winters, where she enjoyed golfing and playing bridge. Helen instilled the love of culture, history and travel into her two granddaughters.
Sadly predeceased by husband John Arthur (Art) Currie (2011), son Glen (1970), her father John Love, mother Catherine Love, and seven sisters, Winnie Grey, Catherine Lockhart, Dorothy Lapp, Jo Grant, Jen McLeod, Ruth McLean and Vi Campbell. Private service at Helen’s request. Special thanks to Shirley Foster who was at Helen’s bedside most of the nights during her last few weeks, and to all the caring staff at Hospice House.
