It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Helen McDuff of Chilliwack, BC on Thursday, January 27th, 2011.
Helen was born in Hillsbourough, New Brunswick on December 30, 1934 and was the youngest of five and the last surviving child born to John and Nellie Wood. She is lovingly missed by husband Ernie McDuff of Chilliwack, BC; son Wray (Brenda) Steeves of Abbotsford, BC and grandsons Christopher Steeves of Vancouver, BC and Micheal Steeves of Abbotsford, BC, nieces, nephews and countless friends. She grew up in New Brunswick and later as a young wife and mother moved to Chilliwack, BC where she remained. Helen worked for 21 years for Canada Post as the Postmaster at Cultus Lake before retiring in 1995.
