November 27, 1927 - January 20, 2021
Helen Viola Elliott (Gerken) born in London, Middlesex, Ontario.
November 27, 1927 – January 20, 2021
Helen was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. At 93 years of age Helen peacefully left this world from her bed in the Roberta Place long term care residence.
Helen was born in London, Ontario. Wife of Robert (Bob) James Elliott for 12 brief but exemplary years (deceased 1964). Sister to Ruth Weir (Gerken) and pre- deceased by her older sister, Mary Steels (Gerken). Lifelong friend and Sister in-law of June Fitzgerald (Elliott).
Proud Mother of Steve (Shirley), Susan (Mark) and Bruce (Birgit). Proud “Grams” of Ryan (Dee), Bob (Ashley), Branden (Kara), Justin (Jenn), Natalie (Luke), Paige, Yasmin (Thomas), Dana and Keenan. Exceptionally proud Great Grandmother to Luella, Charlotte, Emily, Robert, Austin, Everett, Keltie and Sebastian. Helen will also be fondly remembered and missed by her many nieces, nephews and friends.
Helen was a true Matriarch; she fearlessly and unselfishly powered through all of life’s challenges and never buckled in the face of adversity. She maintained herself as a shining example of how to get the most out of life and to seize every moment.
Helen believed there was a time and place for everything. Throughout her life she was happy to be part of any and all gatherings, festivities and day to day actions of her children, grandchildren, friends and extended family. She demonstrated by example how to face not only all the problems, woes and challenges but also the many moments worthy of celebration that life offers.
Her sense of humour and love of chocolate remained intact to the final day.
Family will be scheduling a celebration of life and interment in the future. This will be communicated by family members.
