WELBURN (Pringle), Helen Marie

~ October 18, 1947-November 28, 2023 ~

The full moon called Helen home from her peaceful bed at Maison des Collines in the wee hours of November 28. Helen was a woman in constant motion. She was a skier, a traveler, a pickle ball player, and a hiker. She could be seen walking countless steps all over the village with her sweet dog Daisy and always had a smile to share. She loved fun and loved to share adventures with her family and friends.

She will be deeply missed by her children Allysun and Colin, their partners, her 7 grandchildren, her sister Jane-Anne, brother Jim, her extended family, and so many dear friends. Helen was predeceased by her beloved husbands Sandy Welburn and Don Patry and by her brother Bill. She taught us all to find the fun, to keep moving, to nurture our friendships, and to spend time in nature.

We are so grateful to the Maison des Collines for their gentle care. We also want to express our deep gratitude to the Home Care team at the CLSC, the kind people at the Clinique Médicale des Collines and the patient pharmacists at Brunet. The family could not have cared for her without the kindness and generosity of Helen's friends in the community, who stepped in at a moment’s notice, and gave her so much of their time and love.

A celebration of life will be held at the Belvedere on December 16 from 1-4 pm with a short ceremony at 1:30. We ask that you consider donating to Maison des Collines.
