The joys of her life were her very special grandchildren Tanis, Duane (Andrea), Amber (Eric), Aimee, Jordan, Mallory, Katie, Niki, Samantha, Jennifer and Sara. Helen was so very proud to be a great-grandmother to Jory, Dylan, Tristan, Trinity, Téa, Jayden and Destin. Also survived by her sisters Viola Kirchen, Mayme (Willie) Pruden, Phyllis Dowson and their families. Helen was the matriarch of the family and a devoted Auntie to numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews who meant the world to her.

Helen was predeceased by both parents: Walter and Victoria Stranger, special cousin Hazel Flett, sisters Sophie Alexander and Jean Jansen.
