Elias_helen_sqThe family of Helen Elias of Winnipeg, MB, formerly of Haskett and Neuhorst, is deeply saddened to announce her passing on Wednesday, August 3, 2011 at River East Personal Care Home. 

She was predeceased by her husband, Henry K. Elias and is survived by brothers, Frank, Abe, Cornelius and sister, Tina Penner (John). She leaves to mourn her children, George (Helen), Kate Robinson (Jack), Dave (Brenda), Marilyn, Laura Dorge (Kevin), Judy Barton (Pat), and Phil (Joanne), as well as fourteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. 

Helen was born and raised in Neuhorst. She married Henry K. Elias and moved to a farm near Haskett, where she raised seven children. The family moved to Beausejour in the early sixties, and then on to Winnipeg a few years later where Helen worked as a cook at The University Of Manitoba Food Services. She led an extraordinary life of love and work, of sacrifice and nurturing. When Helen retired she began to show her hidden talents in paintings and other art work that expressed her love of nature. She was a very loving person and will be dearly missed by all her family. 

Funeral services will be held on Monday August 8, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at Neil Bardal Funeral Centre, 3030 Notre Dame Ave. Winnipeg, Manitoba. Interment will follow at 3:30 p.m. at Neuhorst Cemetery. 

A special thank you to the staff at River East Personal Care Home for their compassionate care.
