Obituary of Helen Merwin
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, Helen Merwin, a lifelong resident of Dawson Creek, BC, passed away with her husband and two daughters by her side on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 in Edmonton, AB at the age of 69 years.
Helen and Archie celebrated their Golden 50th wedding anniversary at the beginning of August of 2018! We were blessed to be able to celebrate it with them as it is a milestone to achieve for any married couple.
Helen worked 27 years at the Girl Guide Thrift Store in Dawson Creek, until it closed its doors in January of 2009. When Helen retired, she became a volunteer and player at the weekly bingo games held at the seniors hall. She sure enjoyed playing bingo and looked forward to it every week.
Helen will be lovingly remembered by her husband Archie, her daughters Yvonne (Laird) and Tammy (Corey), granddaughter Brookelyn, and grandsons Louis and Liam, along with her brother Roy Offerson, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Helen was predeceased by her parents Alfred and Florence Offerson and her brother Leo Offerson.
A Celebration of Life was held on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. from Reynars Funeral Chapel. Pauline Haycock officiated. Interment will be held at a later date.
For friends so wishing, donations may be made in memory of Helen to the BC SPCA, 637 114 Avenue, Dawson Creek, BC V1G 3A1, or to the South Peace Mile ‘0’ Park Society, Pioneer Village, Box 2383, Dawson Creek, BC V1G 4T9.
