Mrs. Helen Dehod

We regret to announce the passing of Mrs. Helen Dehod on Friday, 17 February, 2012. Helen will be lovingly remembered by her children, Rhoda, Wilma, Myran, and David, and by her many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Helen was predeceased by her husband William (Bill) of many years in 1990. Bill and Helen came to Vernon from Alberta in the early 1940’s. Bill worked as a heavy duty mechanic for J.S. Galbraith & Son, and Helen worked as a seamstress at Roberts Cleaners for many years. Helen was an exceptionally good cook and loved to cook for her family and friends who came to visit. When Helen knew ahead of time who was coming to visit, quite often, she would get up before the sun came up to make a favorite dish for them so it was ready to serve when they arrived.

The family would like to thank the staff of Noric House for their excellent and passionate care for Helen while she was there.

Prayers will be recited on Sunday, February 26 at 6:00 P.M. and a Funeral Mass for Helen will be celebrated at Saint James’ Catholic Church, on 27th Street, Monday, February 27 at 11:00 AM, to be followed by interment in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.

Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
