Helen Johnson

February 4, 1928 - December 29, 2019


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Helen Johnson, aged 91. On December 29, 2019 Helen passed away surrounded by family at the Kelowna General Hospital.

Helen was born on February 4, 1928 in Krestova, BC. Helen, the second oldest daughter of 5 children, Mary, William (Bill), John and Nellie, was born to Massey and Nastia Antufeaff. Helen was preceded by her sister Mary Gienger, fiancée Fred Tarasoff and her late husband Robert Johnson.

Helen was truly devoted to her only daughter, Holly. Helen was an extremely loving Baba to Bailey (husband Shea), Brock (wife Ashley), Bree (Michael) as well as a step Baba to Shawn (wife Sacha) and Michelle (husband Alain). Helen was so very blessed to be a great grandmother “Baba” to Beckett, Kenley, Porter, Maddix and Pryor. Helen played a major roll in the lives of her nieces and nephews, Patsy (husband Walter), Shirley (husband Phil), Fred (wife Linda), Teresa (husband John), Nina (husband Sandy), Lisa, Leona, Ellen, Joe, John and Dale. Helen was cherished by many others who referred to her as a second mother and their Baba.

Helen was a very goodhearted, loyal and giving woman who had many lifelong relationships with relatives and friends in her community, throughout the Kootenays and as well as other areas in Canada and the USA.

Helen will be greatly missed.

Funeral Services will be held at the Krestova Community Hall and will be officiated by Mr. Sid Malakoff on Saturday, January 11, 2020 from 10:00am until 12:00pm followed by a burial in the Krestova Cemetery.
