Helen was a wonderful spirit, kind, generous and always saw the bright-side to any situation. She tirelessly gave to her family and community. She was a long-time member of the Girl Guides and served as District Commissioner for several years. When Helen moved to Georgetown forty years ago her Church and community became the nucleus of her life. She was deeply involved with St. George's Anglican Church in Georgetown where she made so many wonderful friendships, serving and contributing to countless committees and programs.
