ASHWORTH, Alice Helen. Nov. 29, 1918 – Oct. 23, 2013. It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother Helen Ashworth at her home in South Surrey. Awaiting her with open arms are her mother Alice, father Robert, brothers Jim, Jack, Bob, Bill, sister Dolly, husband Harry, daughter Gail, sons-in-law Brad and Dixon. Survived by her daughters Jane and, Barb, grandchildren Karalee, Kristy, Jordan, Dallas and Shannon and great grandchildren Kolby, Keara, Laytyn, Hayden, Keaton, Scotty, Nolan and Msafiri. Helen was born in Selkirk, Manitoba in “Stuart House”, the family residence. She spent her young adult life in Winnipeg where she was an accomplished speed skater, danced to the big bands, sang great harmony, and met and married beloved husband Harry. After the war years they lived in many locations across Canada finally settling in Victoria. Here Helen volunteered at the Wee Bit Worn Shop and held a secretarial position at the women’s auxillary. Her passions included family, boating, flying, travelling, and family games and gatherings. A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, her gentle spirit, quiet strength, and grace brought comfort to all who knew her. We will hold her tenderly in our hearts forever. In lieu of flowers a donation to The Down’s Syndrome Foundation would be greatly appreciated. A Graveside Service will be held at Hatley Gardens on Sunday, June 22 at 12:00 p.m.
