"LEJ" 2006 Obituary


LEJOUR o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-11-04 published
HELBIG, Marian
Mom left the stage suddenly on Tuesday, October 31, 2006 in the middle of a brilliant set. She was a singer, model, mother, grandmother extraordinaire, and passionate friend who leaves a devastating hole in our lives. We will miss her sense of humour, her style, her beauty and grace, and most of all her incredible warmth and devotion to her family. Mom would want us to remember her long years of cottage freeloading, berry picking and freestyle swimming, globetrotting with kindred spirits, and many nights of jazz to which she brought her inimitable zest and insouciance. We also remember the talented dressmaker, fabulous cook, and hostess who made each legendary Christmas party a destination. We will terribly miss watching the Leafs, doing crosswords and wonderful conversation with this proud Canadian and protoenvironmentalist. She survived in the face of lupus for over 45 years, and taught us to aspire to her noble example. We'll make certain her memory stays alive and bright in her grandchildren's lives. Marian will be deeply missed by her children Karla RODGERS, Avril HELBIG (and spouse Mike HANSEN,) Jason HELBIG and wife Cathy) and grandchildren Michelle, Sadie, Wilder, Greer and Bridget. She is also mourned by her extended family William McCULLOCK, Loretta McCULLOCK, Valida RAHAL, Walter McCULLOCK, Willa LEJOUR, Christina FINNEY and their families. She was predeceased by her loving husband Herbert HELBIG. Visitation at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West (2 stoplights west of Yonge Street), on Sunday, November 5, 2006 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at St. Peter's Anglican Church, 188 Carlton Street (between Jarvis and Parliament Streets), on Monday, November 6, 2006 at 11 a.m. A reception will follow at Marian's residence after the service. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Marian Helbig Memorial Trust in support of an emerging Canadian jazz talent ( 'I'm walking on eggs, I'm walking on jelly legs…'
