It is with great sadness we announce our beloved mother and grandmother, Helen Parker, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family just days before her 89th birthday. She was predeceased by husband, Dennis, in 2001 and is survived by her sister, Marion (Joe), daughter Kathy (Peter), son Gordon (Denise) and daughter Jackie, her grandchildren, Kyle and Madison, and granddog, Kona (who loved her gramma very much). She touched the hearts of many and will be sadly missed by all those who had the chance to know her. The family would like to send special thanks to the Emergency Room and ward staff of Royal Columbian Hospital (6 South) and Eagle Ridge Hospital (C2B) for their compassionate care over the past few weeks. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to either RCH, ERH or the Crossroads Hospice. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Port Moody on Saturday, February 2nd at 11:00 a.m.
