Helen Mae Wilmot, age 90, passed away peacefully at Greenwood Court, Stratford on February 3, 2015. Helen was predeceased by her parents Hamilton and Jane (Maguire) Dempsey, her husband Kenneth Wilmot, siblings Matilda (Millie) Nelson (Cal), Zelma Dempsey, Jack Dempsey (Ted), Jean Ross; a sister-in-law Nancy Symonds and brother-in-law Joseph Smithers. Helen is survived by a sister-in-law Hazel Smithers, a brother-in-law Graydon Symonds and many nieces and nephews and their families. Helen enjoyed nothing better than a drive in the country with Ken and she knew the most unique places to stop to enjoy pie and tea. She had a knack of knowing the historical architecture in and around the Stratford area. She enjoyed flowers and she and Ken grew prize-winning roses. Keeping a diverse collection of recipes, Helen went to great lengths to make creative meals. She spent many hours doing needlepoint and visitors were treated to her works of art in her suite at Greenwood Court. Helen loved their dachshund, “Taffy” and was a friend to all animals. She was a discriminating collector of puzzles, but never did them; miniature liquor bottles; Swartz crystal animals; and Christmas ball decorations she made from patterns she bought in the USA. She was a person who could wrap gifts in the most unique ways which family enjoyed. Helen enjoyed reading the local papers and clipped articles for relatives and friends. She cherished many items from her past that brought her many “Remember When’s” throughout the years, included a long stem red poppy. Helen served in the Canadian Armed Forces during WWII as a Sargent with the CWAC. She was employed for many years in Stratford with her last job at The Ministry of Transportation. Before moving back to Stratford, Ken and Helen lived in Sebringville. The family wish to thank Gerry, Brenda, Lynn and all the staff at Greenwood Court for their wonderful and loving care. A family service will take place and the scattering of her cremated remains in God’s Holy Acre, St. James Anglican Church.
