What a well chosen picture! That is Helen. She was always happy to be with family and friends. She loved all her family members who referred to her as Baba. Paul and I are very grateful for the times we spent with her. She made us feel we were part of the Sharko and Elliot families. She had a great sense of humor and sense of empathy, Everyone who attended Elliot parties knew what a fantastic cook Helen was. We especially loved her pierogies and cabbage rolls. We enjoyed watching the pictures and music on the video and going into the web cast. This remarkable woman will be remembered and missed. It is unfortunate that the present virus prevented us from the visitation and funeral for her. We look forward to the celebration of her life at a later date.
Love and prayers,
Paul & Tia

We are so sorry for the loss of an amazing, loving, caring, smart, funny and one heck of a euchre player. We will always have fond memories of Baba at the cottage and the many celebrations we shared with her and your family. She will forever be missed but not forgotten. Lots of love to your family during this difficult time. Xoxo Love the Bents

I have nothing buy fond memories of your Mom and Dad and the lovely visits at your home when we were children. Your Moms dill pickles were the best. May you find strength in her memories to get you thru these terrible times.

Dear Gail and Family.
My sympathy on your Mother's passing. I never met her but she sounded like quite a gal.
My mother had her 100th birthday last Nov. It's a treasure we have our parents as long as we do.
You'll have lots of wonderful memories. Sincerely Pat Brennan.
