Helen Louise Stewart

Helen Louise Stewart (nee Kennedy) of Kenora, Ontario passed away peacefully at Lake of the Woods District Hospital on Oct. 31, 2003.

Helen was born and raised on her family's dairy farm about six miles from Paris, Ontario. Helen was the youngest child of Millie and John Kennedy. She attended elementary school in South Dumfries Township in Brant County and graduated from Paris High School. Helen attended Normal School in Hamilton and upon graduation taught school near Brantford and later in Hamilton. During summer vacations she furthered her education by attending summer courses at McMaster, Western and the University of British Columbia.

It was while teaching in Hamilton that she met her husband Wally in 1953. They were married at Richmond United Church with a reception at the farm on July 30, 1955. Helen and Wally lived in Niagara Falls, London, Barrie, and Kapuskasing before moving to Kenora in 1960. Helen grew to love Kenora and the surrounding area, but she never forgot the farm and always called her home "God's Country".

Helen enjoyed many activities in Kenora. She continued to enjoy teaching on a part-time basis for many years. She was involved with her children's schools and activities, Pinecrest Community Club and she taught 4-H. She was a member of Know United Church and she was active with the United Church Women. She was a volunteer at Pinecrest Home for the Aged. Helen loved to sew, quilt and make crafts. She took pleasure in a good read and could often be found curled up with a book. Every spring her attention turned to flowers and her garden. She especially loved sunflowers. She enjoyed the changing of the seasons and she curled in the winter and had great times playing golf in the summer months. She loved a celebration and her most happy times were spent in the company of her family and friends. She enjoyed her regular bridge club get-togethers for over forty years and no inclement weather would deter her or her friends from attending. Many happy times were spent with Wally in Corpus Christie, Texas during their retirement years.

Helen lived a full and happy life. She will be remembered for her enthusiasm, patience, and eternal optimism.

Helen was predeceased by her mother and father, her sister Bette Kennedy; and her brothers Warren and Robert Kennedy.

Helen will be remembered by many friends and family members throughout Canada and the United States. She will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by her husband Wally; her daughter Peggy and her husband Jim Gustafson, daughter Gail and her husband Jim Brigham of Winnipeg, son Ian and his wife Sheila of Thunder Bay; her sister Mary (Stuart) Cowan of Drumbo, Ont; brother John Kennedy of Vancouver; and brother-in-law Bruce (June) Stewart of Cobourg, Ont. Her grandchildren were a joy to her and she was much loved by Jeff Gustafson, Kate Gustafson, Ben Gustafson, Elizabeth Brigham, Emily Brigham, Maura Brigham, Clare Brigham, Karly Stewart and Jolee Stewart. She will also be missed by many nieces and nephews.

At Helen's request, cremation has been arranged by Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre. A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, November 5th at 2:00 p.m. at Knox United Church. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital or a charity of one's choice.

"She had a kind heart, and was to prove loyal and true to the very end."

- E. B. White
