Helen Carolyn Griffin (nee Forrester)

November 3, 1954-April 1, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mom and granny.  Helen is survived by her husband, Rob, children, Shane (Chelsea), James (Sarah), Chad, and Cherie (Conor), and grandchildren, Jordana, Olivia and Graydon.  Helen was born in Fergus, ON, moved to Australia, and eventually settled in Victoria, BC, where she met Rob.  For Helen, her family and friends meant everything.  She cherished each and every family occasion and when one ended, preparation would begin for the next.  Her passion for genealogy and her diligent research enabled her to reconnect with so many relatives and friends over the years.  Helen will be lovingly remembered for her kind, caring and welcoming nature, her great laugh that made everyone smile, her warm embraces, beautiful knitwork, and delicious desserts.  She will be greatly missed by all of her family and friends.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her memory to Broken Promises Rescue.
