ANDERSON, Helen (nee Larkin)

February 11, 1927 – June 26, 2015

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother. Helen passed away peacefully on June 26, 2015 at the age of 88. Helen was predeceased by her husband Sigfred (Andy) and her sister Millie Smith. She is survived by her daughters Susan (Rob) and Kathy and her granddaughters Sara, Alison and Emma. Helen was a strong, independent person, with a warm and caring heart and a gentle soul. She enjoyed life’s simple pleasures – a good meal, a day at the beach, a cold beer, the casino, reading the paper, but most of all her family and friends. She was always there to listen and lend a hand, and loved spending time with her grandchildren.

Special thanks to the staff at Peach Arch Hospital for their care and compassion. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2pm Sunday July 12th at Alternatives Funeral Home, 3070 275A Street, Aldergrove. A reception will follow – details at service. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
