It is with sadness we announce that Helen Priest passed away peacefully on December 15th, 2011 in Surrey, BC. She was born July 14, 1922 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England.
She will be forever remembered and greatly missed by sons Trevor and Tom (Nancy); daughter, Cheryl-Anne; grandchildren, Kori, Krista, Cassandra, Dave, Jeff and Shelby; as well as 7 great-grandchildren.
At her request, no service will be held. Her loving family and many friends are asked to remember her by the companionship and laughter they shared.
I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways.
Of happy times and laughing times and bright, sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
