Helen Sharon Petsinis

Date of Death: January 23, 2019


Helen Sharon Petsinis

Born in Calgary, Alberta on November 15, 1948

It is with deep sadness that the family of Helen Sharon Petsinis announce her sudden and unexpected passing on January 23, 2019.

Helen will join her loving husband Leo of nearly 50 years, who passed away almost two years ago. Helen is survived by her two daughters, Melissa (Marshall) and Doreen (Grant). Her three grandchildren, Lucas, Erin and Tyler brought joy and incredible happiness to her every day.

Helen’s smile and laugh would fill the room when she was surrounded by all her loved ones. One of the many things she will be remembered for is how much she loved being in the kitchen cooking huge feasts for friends and family to enjoy. She was a loving, caring and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. We will miss you Helen.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

I have so many childhood memories of trips to Nelson to visit Auntie Helen, Uncle Leo, and my cousins Melissa and Doreen. When we would get together, it was lazy days watching Auntie Helen’s taped episodes of Dallas and Falcon Crest followed by fun evenings of food, family and laughter. So many years of Easter’s, Christmas’ and summer swim meets together. She had the best smile and I can hear her laughter when I think of those years and years of her beating me at cards. We last saw each other at the family reunion in Lethbridge where she sang and danced as we remembered Uncle Leo. She will be missed greatly. Hugs and so much love to Melissa, Marshal, Lucas, Erin, Doreen, Grant and Tyler. Xoxo

Such great memories of swim meets and parties with Leo and Helen. Specially times in Spokane or at the horse races in Lethbridge. Melissa and Doreen, my thoughts are with you. Of course when she employed my daughter when she was a student really sticks in my mind.
