Cherished mother of Russell, Elizabeth (Dario GALINDO) and Thomas (Linda.) Proud grandmother of Marion and step-grand_son, Simon. Loving sister of Elizabeth SHARPE and the late Sam KYDD, and sister-in-law to Doctor Jeanne BECK. Helen was born on July 26, 1917 in Campbellford, Ontario and attended schools in Orillia, Port Colborne and Ottawa before entering McGill University, where she graduated with a B.A. and High School Teaching Diploma in 1939. At McGill, she was President of her sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, and was President of the McGill Glee Club.

Moving with her husband to Toronto in 1967, she became an active member of Glenview Presbyterian Church, Goodwill Industries and the North York University Women's Club.
