|HELEN MARGARET GURNEY (nee Monteith)
Passed away peacefully at the Wingham Hospital just a few weeks after her 88th birthday. Helen landed in Toronto in 1957 leaving behind her beloved home in Northern Ireland. She was a well-loved daughter, and a cherished sister to 9 siblings.
Helen was an avid gardener and animal lover. Nothing was too much for her when it came to her loved ones. The family are deeply devastated by her loss.
Helen was predeceased by her husband Gary, son Stephen and her siblings Cecil, Mabel, Lee, Bob, Olive and Artie. She will be lovingly missed from afar by brothers Ernie and Howard, and sister Ethel as well as many nieces and nephews.
Even in her final days, Helen never stopped loving and mothering her children and grandchildren. She will be forever loved and missed by son Paul (Chayapa) and daughter Andrea (Tony). She was known to her beloved grandchildren as "Gaga". She will live forever in their hearts; Hayden, Tara, Emma, and Grace. Loved and missed from afar by Becky, Charlene, Jennifer, Stephen, Breanne, and Gordon.
As per Helen's wishes cremation has taken place, and a celebration of her beautiful life will occur in early 2023.
for those who wish to the family would be honoured if donations could be made to the Kismutt Small Dog Rescue or the Lakefield Animal Welfare Society.
