Helen Palmer died peacefully at home in Madeira Park on October 27, 2019. She was born at home in Vancouver and so was able to fulfill her lifelong wish to stay home til the end. At 88, she was well ready to join her beloved Ross and all the dogs she loved and lost over the years.
Helen was a "party animal" to the end, and would break into her favorite song "Wasn't that a party" by the Irish Rovers at every chance. She is survived by brother and sister in law Art and Thel of Hopkins Landing, son Bill and daughter in law Karen, three granddaughters and their mates Kristy and Clint, Megan and Justin, Katie and Marcus, and her 6 GREAT grandchildren Emma, Jake, Ryley, Kailey, Sarah, and Kaya all living in Madeira Park thanks to Nana and this great community!
Huge thanks to Meals on Wheels and Helen's home care providers - without your help Helen could not have stayed home until the end.
We will be having a small gathering at her house on Monday December 2, 1-4pm. Anyone wanting to dance on the table in her honor? She would love that!
