Helena Funk went to be with her Lord and Saviour on December 15th just 9 days after her 95th birthday. She was predeceased by her husband Abram, infant son Abe, son-in-law George Lupuliak, grand-daughter Melodie Funk. She is survived by 12 children, John (Irene) Funk, Henry (Barbara) Funk, Eva (Garry) Becker, Helen Lupuliak, Bill (Christiana) Funk, Cory (MaryAnn) Funk, Jack (Carol) Funk, Ben (Linda) Funk, Paul (Sharon) Funk, Al (Verna) Funk, Walter(Lori) Funk, and Elsie (Dave) Phoenix, 29 grandchildren and 34 great grandchildren.
Helena spent her first 60 years in Saskatchewan and the last 35 in British Columbia. After losing her husband of 73 years in November 2004, Helena spent the last 4 years of her life at the Menno Home. Although dementia took most of the mother we knew during the last couple of years, the relationship she had with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ sustained her to the end.
A memorial service will be held on January 7th at Abbotsford Pentecostal Assembly at 3:30 PM.
