I have many fond recollections of Hélène from Calgary and Ottawa -- her genuine kindness, elegant and gracious hospitality, and joie de vivre were inspirational gifts that have resonated for many years. She was a unique and lovely lady, as this beautiful photo so vividly captures. My heart goes out to her family in these days of remembrance and celebration of her life. Marilyn Smith, Ottawa
Helene was a wonderful neighbor, full of life and kindness.
RIP Helene, you will be missed.
Recevez mes très sincères condoléances et l’expression de ma plus profonde sympathie.

I read the tribute to Helene and the love her family and friends have for her jumps out from the page. Our condolences and best wishes to Jack and all of the Major clan.

Helen and I had a wonderful 60 years of friendship. At first we skied together, played golf, badmington and cycled.
Later, we became interested in taking bridge lessons. Helen wanted to become a bridge master so we entered tournaments to get points. We travelled to Alaska and Bermuda on bridge jaunts sponsored by Helen’s club in Ottawa. We played afternoons and evenings and when my husband phoned to ask how we liked Bermuda, we had to say we had not left the hotel. We toured the Island the next day.
We had such fun meeting people from everywhere. Helen did get her masters as she set out to do. I miss my dear friend, but I’m left with many happy memories. Rose Mary
