May 6, 1932 – June 6, 2020
Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister and aunt passed away peacefully at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital on the morning of June 6, 2020.
Helen was born May 6, 1932 in the Ukraine to Peter and Helena Redekop. They immigrated to Canada in 1948 thru Halifax, lived in Manitoba and finally settled in Abbotsford in 1951.
She married our father John Klassen in 1959 and began farming life. John passed away in 1973 and Helen continued farming while raising three children.
She was always a hard working lady and really enjoyed travelling, singing in the church ladies choir, playing canasta and spending time with her grandchildren.
Helen will be deeply missed by her children; Elizabeth, Henry (Christine), Lorena (Ingo) and her grandchildren; Lucas, (Loreal), Erin, Matthew, James, Alia, Evan and Alek.
Cremation has taken place and the family will have a Celebration of Life at a later date.Obituary
