Helen (Helushia) Marie Lueke, age 67, passed away on July 5, 2019, surrounded by her family at the Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton.
From her birth in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, on July 13, 1951, to her death on Friday, she always made everyone feel welcome, loved and cared about. She loved spending time with family and friends, spoiling and creating special memories with her grandchildren whom she adored, travelling and being outdoors. Helen will be remembered for her smile and infectious laugh, her joy of cooking and baking, hosting family and friends, gardening and tending her yard, painting and crocheting. In her many years within Elk Island Catholic Schools, she was often seen as the “mom of the staff” and made sure everyone was looked after.
Helen will be deeply missed by her husband of 48 years, Harvey; sons, Jason (Marie) and Jonathan (Nicole); and grandchildren, Nathaniel, Benjamin, Violet and Lily. Helen is predeceased by her father Ignacy Sierzant, and sister in law Mardel Klane (nee Lueke).
A Funeral Mass for Helen will be celebrated at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Sherwood Park on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 10:00 am.
