HERRON, Mrs. Helen Victoria Herron of Red Deer, passed away peacefully at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre on Thursday, April 28, 2005 at the age of 81 years. Helen was born on October 25, 1923 at Winnipeg, Manitoba. She spent her childhood growing up in the Winnipeg area. Helen was a remarkable woman with a strong will. She served overseas as Drill Sargeant during World War II. It was while she was overseas that Helen met and married her beloved husband, Lloyd Herron. Helen, however, will always be fondly rem- embered for her long standing management career at both Olympic Lanes and the Red Deer Bowladrome. Helen was an astonishing lady, who in her own endearing manner, let you know exactly where you stood with her. She was also a very loving and caring mother who took great pride and loving care in each and every thing she did for her family and also her friends. During the time she lived at the Sylvan Lake Lodge, Helen was the social butterfly and the great organizer of events for the seniors and games of cards. Her talents were endless and her sense of wit and charm brought her many friendships during her life. Helen’s spirits were cheerful and bright even through her last days. Our loving mother and grandmother, “Our example in life” and our friend – you will very deeply missed but your love and your gifts to us will remain in our hearts and in our memories forever. Helen leaves to mourn her loss, her loving children, Rick and his wife, Bev Herron of Calgary, Alberta, Sheila and her husband, Ken Huston and Bob and his wife, Lynn Herron, all of Red Deer, her grandchildren, Travis, Courtland and Nikita Herron, Vicki Diebert and Eric Riggins, Cris, Jeff and Matt Huston, Shane Herron and his wife, Erica and Mark Herron and her great grandchildren, Jacob, Olivia and Nicholas. She will also be sadly missed by her brother, Mike and his wife, Kay Shrupka of Winnipeg, Manitoba, as well as other family members in Manitoba.
