We grieve the loss of our mother, Helene Stratichuk, who left peacefully on April 19, 2001. Do not let your grief be measured by her worth, for then your sorrow has no end.

Left to cherish Helene's memory are daughters, Judith (Ted), Peggie (Sid), Donna (Darrell); grandchildren, Toni, Brent, Graham, Janelle; sisters, Esther and Mary; sisters-in-law, Trudy, Stella, Mary, Eleanor (Punch), Alice. Helene is now reunited with her beloved husband, Nicholas (1998) and son, Barrymore (1982); as well as numerous family members.

Helene was a much loved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was steadfast in her duty and love for her family - we will all miss her and her influence and guidance. She was actively involved in the community and church and touched the lives of many people. Helene served as an outstanding mentor and role model, not only for her family and friends, but for the many students who passed through her classrooms, and for the many colleagues in education with whom she served for almost 30 years. Helene struggled with her health for several years, but was always strong and courageous in the face of hardships. Special thanks go to the nursing and support staff of Station 2A at Dickinsfield and Station 61 at the Royal Alex Hospital who gave such great care, showed compassion and patience, and were unfailingly polite and respectful towards Helene. It is with these thoughts that we will move beyond our present grief to appreciate the wonderful legacy that our Mother left us. We thank her for the strength she gave us, the support that was constant, the peace she promoted and life's lessons which she taught us well.

At her request, there will be no service. However, in the spirit of Helene's sense of giving and helpfulness, she would be honoured to continue helping others as she often did. therefore, in lieu of flowers, please consider donations to a charity of your choice.

Because of her
our small world
will never be the same.
And all our hearts
are filled with love
when people speak her name.
But though her face
may not be seen
among us here today.
her presence is felt
in all the hearts
she changed along the way.
