HELEN CAYER (ROSS)
1938 - 2019
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that the family announces the passing of their beloved Helen. Helen passed away at the Marianhill Nursing Home in Pembroke Ontario on November 24, 2019. She loved crafts and family. She was a very kind hearted, giving, gentle person.
Helen was born in Wahnapitae Ontario on January 21, 1938. She married Tony Cayer in 1956 in Sudbury. They relocated to North Bay in their earlier years. She worked at the Civic Hospital in North Bay for several years. Tony predeceased her in 1978. They had 2 daughters. Lorraine White predeceased 2019 (Randy) and Jeaninne Cayer.
She was a very proud Grandmother to 5 Grandchildren, Robert (predeceased 1971), Ginette, Bernadette, Marc and Valerie (predeceased 1992). She was also proud of her 10 Great Grandchildren, Kaylee, Tony, Ashley, Brad, Christopher, Sean, Mylene, Bryan, Dylan, Eric and 2 Step Great Grandchildren. Joshua and Jessica.
She is predeceased by her parents Anna Ross (Champagne) 1997 and Romeo Ross 1981.
She also had 11 Siblings. Julia Joly (Gerald) Maurice Ross (Glenda) Muriel Guindon (Victor) Alma Rivers predeceased 1995 (William) Laurence Ross predeceased 2017 (Rachelle) Claire Gignac (Roger) Annie Charron (Charlie) Claudette Brabant (David) Ernest Ross (Aline) Gerald Ross (Brenda) and Andre Ross.
When Helen gets to Heaven she’s going to find her loved ones.
The first thing she will do is find Lorrie, Valerie, Robert and Tony. I am sure there will be a great celebration.
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you the day God called you home.
As a mother you cared for your children and guided them. They could feel your love and gentleness as you walked through life beside them.
As a grandmother/great grandmother your life was full of loving deeds, forever thoughtful of their special needs.
We will love our sister all of our days. She enriched our life in so many ways.
The family would like to express their appreciation for the kindness and compassionate care shown to Helen by all the healthcare professionals at Marianhill Nursing Home. A special thank you to Randy White who was involved in her battle and journey.
