June 5, 1933 – October 27, 2012

It is with heartfelt sadness we regret to announce the passing of Helen Voykin on October 27, 2012 at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

Mom was predeceased by her husband Alex Voykin in 1981, her parents Teresa and John Zwarych and sister Gloria Zwarych.

She will be sadly missed by her daughters Linda (Bill) Hill of Revelstoke, Shelley (Shannon) Voykin of New Westminster, Glenda Dolman of Lumby as well as grandchildren Dru (Melissa, Drake and Cameron), Heather, Carley and Cody. She is also survived by her brother Marvin (Lori) Zwarych; sister Rose (Len) Baran; sister-in-law Grace (John) Kolle and several nieces, nephews and friends.

Helen was an amazing mom, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend who always took care of everyone. She was loved by all who knew her and we pray for the strength to carry on without her.

The family would like to send a special thank you to Dr. le Roux, Dr. VanZyl, Dr. Humphries, Dr. Yacyshyn, the Hogart’s Pharmacy staff, and the many nice staff at VJH.

To honour mom’s wishes, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Center at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

Cremation arrangements were in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
