It is with much sadness we announce the passing of Helen Walker on Tuesday, June 28, 2022.  Born in Detroit, Michigan, November 1, 1930, daughter of the late Vernon and Hannah (Hayward) Chenoweth.  Beloved wife of the late Robert (Bob) Walker (2005).  Loving mother of Brian Walker, Beth Sippel (Bruce), Janet Hern, Sandra Bick (David) and Barbara Wildfong (Colin).  Fondly remembered by brother William Chenoweth (Yvonne), sisters-in-law Madeline Battler and Phyllis Chenoweth and many nieces and nephews.  Special grandma to Barry Walker (Lisa), Cheryl Thornton (Alan), David Walker (Christine), Randy Sippel (Melissa), Kim Lane (Dean), Jason Sippel (Michelle), Dylan Hern, Daniel Hern (Alexa), Erin Bick (Brian) and Ben Bick (Emily).  Great Grandma to Travis, Tyler and Brandon Walker, Dustin (Rachel) and Amber Thornton, Rachelle, Andrew and Addison Walker, Brenden, Jake and Mya Sippel, Carter and Nolan Lane, Malcolm and Cora Sippel, Lucas Hern, and Georgia, Lindsay, Noelle and Hazel Bick.  Predeceased by father-in-law Eli Walker, mother-in-law Cora (Lindsay) Walker, brothers Roy Chenoweth and Gordon Chenoweth, sister-in-laws Vera Chenoweth and Pauline Chenoweth, brother-in-laws John (Jack) Walker and James Battler and grandson Joshua Bick.

Together Bob and Helen raised 5 children on their family dairy farm in North Easthope.  Sebringville became their new home when they left the farm.  In retirement they enjoyed traveling abroad and camping with their motorhome.  Bobcageon was a favorite summertime destination where boating, fishing and relaxing in the great outdoors was top priority.  Playing cards with friends and family was a passion for Helen where there was lots of competition and especially lots of laughs. Concerts in the park, attending theatre with friends, reading and doing jigsaw puzzles were also favorite pastimes.

A private family service will be held on Thursday June 30th, 2022 at 2:00 p.m., with interment to follow. 

As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the Rotary Hospice Stratford or the Canadian Cancer Society through W. G. Young Funeral Home. 519.271.7411.
