HELEN MARY WOOD
February 1, 1920 - March 12, 2022
The family of Helen Wood are sad to announce her passing on March 12, 2022 at the age of 102 years.
Helen will be greatly missed by her daughter Jo-Ann; son Tim (Brenda); grandchildren, Kris, Kyle (Lia), Kathryn (Jason), Ryan (Krissy), and Judge (Nicole); as well as great grandchildren, Tyler (Teressa), Hailey, Cayden, Mason, Finn, and Brooks.
Mom was predeceased by her husband George; granddaughter Jennifer; and sons-in-law Barry and Svend.
Mom had a wonderful life. We had a big celebration of Mom’s 99th birthday with family and many friends at Jo-Ann’s. We were able to celebrate her 100th birthday at Catherine Place. Unfortunately Covid, did not allow us to be with her for her 101th and 102th birthdays but she enjoyed all the cards sent to her as well as the birthday wishes on Facebook.
Mom was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan but spent her young years in Estevan, Saskatchewan. She married Dad (George) September 30, 1940. They moved to Winnipeg when he returned from overseas and retired from the Army. In 1972, Mom moved to Regina and then in 1987, they moved back to Winnipeg.
Mom got to travel to Disneyland, Las Vegas and Hawaii. She enjoyed time at Tim and Brenda’s home in Lac du Bonnet, going on the boat was a favourite. Time at the cottage with Jo-Ann and Svend, especially when the great grandkids were there. Mom enjoyed going to quilt shows with Jo-Ann and having lunch with Judge in Altona, after seeing that quilt show. Ryan and Mom loved watching football games together, especially when Regina and Winnipeg played.
Mom enjoyed going out for lunch with Jo-Ann’s Spit Sisters and the Red Hat ladies. And discussing curling with Bern and of course, her friend, Vi. Thank you, Vi for all your calls to Mom, reminding her that curling or football would be on.
Big thank you to Kathryn for all your visits to Grandma, especially with Frankie. We think Mom liked seeing Frankie more than she did Kathryn.
The family extends thanks to the staff at St. Norbert Personal Care Home, especially Lauren and Lisa. As per Mom’s request, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice or the Alzheimer’s Society.
