Helen will be forever missed but never forgotten and was the loved mother of Marion (Wally) , Elaine (Ed) and  Doug (Coleen).

Loving grandmother of Kristy (Derek), Deanna (Mark), Jesse (Lindsay), Marcia and Ashley and great grandmother of Sadie, Colm, Tess, Moses, Jace, Darby and Connley.  She is survived by one brother Clayton Salter of Molesworth as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
