POTH – Mrs. Helen
Sadly, on January 6, 2019, Mrs. Helen Poth, late of Shellbrook, passed away at Whispering Pine Place in Canwood at the age of 100 years.
Helen was born to Otto and Sarah Halverson (nee Gullickson) of the Sturgeon River district on December 9, l918. She lived on the farm until her dad's passing in l951 at which time Helen and her mom moved to Prince Albert. It was there she met Henry who had immigrated from the Netherlands. They married in l961 and in l980 moved back to the farm.
Helen loved travelling and enjoyed many trips to the States, the mountains, and more recently the Netherlands and Alaska. The beauty of God's creations made her happy which was also evidenced in her flower and vegetable gardens. Helen was very musical and loved playing the organ and accordion. She adjusted very well to her move to Whispering Pine Place in Canwood this past summer and was very happy and content to call it home.
There will be a Funeral Service held for Helen on Friday, January 11, 2019 at 1:00 pm In St. John’s Lutheran Church in Shellbrook with Pastor Emmanuel Aristide officiating. Helen will be laid to rest in the Sturgeon River Cemetery.
