CURRIE, Helen (Sterling)
It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Helen Currie (née Sterling), who died on November 25, 2014 in White Rock, BC, surrounded by her loving children. Helen was born in Tilston, Manitoba on August 10, 1930, and throughout her life, made her home in Manitoba, Ontario, and British Columbia. Always looking after family, friends, and community, Helen’s work and volunteering included teaching in various capacities, retail, leading Girl Guides, long term care, Alzheimers support, acting as mom and grandma to all friends, and stepping up to do anything she could to help anyone in need. Sharing her passion for writing, philosophy, and humour, she had a special way of helping others through even the most challenging of life events. Predeceased by her husband, R.J. (Jack) Currie in 1994, her parents, Gordon and Hazel (Bremner) Sterling, and her siblings, Velma, Elgar, and Evelyn, Helen is survived by her children, Bob, John, and Sandra, and their families, including 8 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren who were the light of her life. Memorial service Friday, December 12, 2014, 2:00 p.m., at Boal Chapel in North Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, donations to Doctors Without Borders or the Tilston Cemetery Fund would be appreciated.
