Our beautiful and sweet Mother, Nanny and Great Nanny, Helen, passed away quietly on October 21, 2008 at the age of 90 years.  Helen was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on September 5, 1918.  She lived in Halifax until 2001, when she moved to Westbank British Columbia to be closer to her children and grandchildren.  While living in Westbank, she was blessed with three great grandchildren.  We are thankful we had her close to us and feel fortunate for every moment we spent together. Helen is survived by one brother, Ralph, of Halifax, Nova Scotia, two daughters: Caroline Piche (Bob) of Westbank, BC and Cindy DeMone of Calgary, Alberta, grandchildren: Francine Laimana (Kalani) and Pierre Piche (Amber), and three great grandchildren: Kainoa, Pierson and Jacob who were the joy of her life.  Also, two nieces: Linda Geary (James) and Pam Noel of Halifax, Nova Scotia and three nephews: Cyril and Tom of Halifax, Nova Scotia and Tim (Kathy) of New Jersey, USA.  Predeceased by her husband, parents, one sister Caroline, and four brothers: Earl, George, Roy and Kenneth all of Halifax, Nova Scotia. No service by request. Cremation at Springfield Funeral Home in Kelowna British Columbia.  Internment at Camp Hill Cemetery in Halifax, Nova Scotia will take place in the spring of 2009. Helen asked that when she passed special thanks be given to her family doctor, Dr. Emslie, for his kindness.  Thank you so much Dr. Emslie.
