Helen Serwa, our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother, affectionately known as Bapka, died on January 22, 2018 at the age of 106 and a half. She was a true Canadian pioneer.
Her kindness, patience and caring ways always made you feel welcome and special. Her work ethic, wisdom and willing spirit has been and will continue to be an inspiration to her family. She encouraged all of us to be the best we could be and passed on the importance of honesty and integrity.

Sadly, she was predeceased by her husband Jack in 1987, her daughters Ruth Kuhn in 1994 and Lillian Berry in 2007, as well as her great granddaughters Brittany in 1989 and Lola in 2011.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Michael Bobyn and all who cared for her during the past year and a half at Cottage 2 at Good Samaritan Mountainview Village.
