Marie Helen Mckenzie

May 11, 1923 - May 22, 2013


Having reached the grand milestone of 90 years, Helen passed peacefully, surrounded by the love of her family. She was predeceased by her daughters Patricia and Willa, son-in-law Dick Button and grandson Thomas DeJong.

She is survived by her loving husband of 74 years Bill, children Chris (Dick), Mike (Toni), Kelly (Hans), Brent (Valerie), (Sylvie), and grandchildren Megan, D’Arcy, Chad, Michael, Diane, Karen, Liam, Ryan, Kyra, Jennifer, Leiah, Kyla, Erin, 10 great-grandchildren and one on the way.

Helen came from Saskatchewan to Powell River with Bill in 1940. During the war she enjoyed working in the mill, sawing the immense spruce logs from the coastal forests. She had a keen interest in education, politics, sports, animals and the environment. Her life focus, however, was her family and she worked passionately to guide them all to reach their best potential.

From her early childhood to her last days, Helen met life with grit, perseverance, independence and determination. She will be greatly missed but will now be reunited with those who went before. No service by her request. A family celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
