Helen is survived by her husband Michael and two sons Gavin Johns and Victor (Taryn) Frisk with two grandchildren Benny and Noah. She was also loving "second mother" (she hated the word Stepmother) to Simon, David and Stephen.
Travel to Mexico was always a priority where she sought a deeper understanding of the Mayan culture. She leaves a host of friends behind in Mexico, all who loved HER as we did.
Helen was a very kind, loving and compassionate woman giving good feelings to everyone no matter where she was. She was an avid gardener and nature lover, always had cats in her life and loved to feed the "Birdies".
