Dorene (Dorothy Irene) Nee Fribance Helmer

August 20, 1929 – November 30, 2022
In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness that the family of Dorene Helmer, announces her passing on November 30, 2022, at the age of 93 years. We were very fortunate that many friends and family were at her side. She will be sadly missed by her children, Denise (Jim) Harrigan, Gary (Debra) Helmer, Kevin (Penny) Helmer and many loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
There will be no funeral at Dorene’s request. Cremation and arrangements are in the care of Eventide Funeral Home, Red Deer, Alberta.
Her request was to share her favorite poem:

SHARING
There isn’t much that I can do,
but I can share my bread with you,
And I can share my joy with you,
and sometimes share a sorrow too
As on our way we go.
There isn’t much that I can do,
but I can sit an hour with you,
And I can share a story with you,
and sometimes share reverses, too,
As on our way we go.
There isn’t much that I can do,
but I can share my flowers with you,
And I can share my books with you,
and sometimes share your burdens, too,
As on our way we go.
There isn’t much that I can do,
but I can share my songs with you,
And I can share my mirth with you,
and sometimes come and laugh with you,
As on our way we go.
There isn’t much that I can do,
but I can share my hopes with you,
And I can share my fears with you,
and sometimes shed some tears with you,
As on our way we go.
There isn’t much that I can do,
but I can share my friends with you,
And I can share my life with you,
and ofttimes share a prayer with you,
As on our way we go.
– Maude V Preston
