KETLER, Helen - Sunday, 16 Nov 2003
Helen Ketler passed away peacefully Nov. 16, 2003 at the Extended Care Unit of Chilliwack General Hospital, where she had resided for the past 3 years. Her family is extremely grateful for the kind and loving care she received there during her final years.
Helen is survived by her three sons, Ron (Janis), Marv (Debbie) and Stephen (Susan); grandchildren; Willie, Michael and Matthew; Angela, Lisa and Jeff; Ryan and Eric; brothers, Pete (Iris), Walt (Meg), Vic and Verne; sisters-in-law, Cathie and Pat.

She was predeceased by her loving husband Bill, her brothers Henry and Alvin and her sister-in-law Marilyn.
Helen was born in Orlowa, Russia, March 17, 1923 to Henry and Katharina Penner. She was the only daughter and second oldest child which would include six boys. In 1925 she, along with her older brother Pete and younger brother Henry, accompanied her parents on the long voyage to Canada. They eventually settled in Gem, Alberta where the family grew to include brothers, Alvin, Walter, Vic and Verne.
