Helen Ruby McLeod passed away peacefully at home on August 4th, 2008 at the age of 86. Helen is survived by her son Wayne (Carla) McLeod, grandson Shane (Toni) McLeod, great granddaughter Halee McLeod as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Boyd McLeod on March 28, 1988; five brothers Harold, Stan, Roy, Willis and Bobby Able and one sister Dorie Grant. Helen was a loving, loyal and devoted wife and mother. She had a passion for numbers so became a bookkeeper. She was a long time employee with Sears and moved from Edmonton with her family to help open the Sears Store at Orchard Park Mall, as the offi ce manager. Helen spent the last 2 1?2 years of her life in Summerland with her son and daughter-in-law, where she was loved and cared for. She felt blessed to have lived a long and happy life with little pain. She continued to enjoy her crossword puzzles and game shows, along with the peacefulness of country living and the companionship of family and pets, especially her precious little rat dog, Chica, up until the time she was able to let go of the breathing. At Helen’s request there will be no service. VALLEYVIEW FUNERAL HOME entrusted with arrangements 250-765-3147.
