Helen Friesen, age 88 of Steinbach, Manitoba passed away peacefully on October 31, 2023 at Bethesda Regional Health Centre. She is survived by her beloved children Ray (Myrna), Brian (Mariann), Jerry (Joan), Cheryl (Earl), her beloved grandchildren Cara (Ken), Andrea (Greg), Kali (Rob), Jared (Corliss), Nancy (John), Robert (April), Janel, Bruce (Jess), Laura (Nick), and her beloved great-grandchildren Teresa, Frances, Margaret, Olive, Wyatt, Cambree, Eva, Rhyah, Gus, Bowen, Adelyn, as well as her two sisters and their families. She was predeceased by her husband Pete, parents, one brother, one sister, parents in-law, one daughter in-law and numerous in-laws. Mom and Dad were married August 9, 1953, and were happily married until dad’s passing October 21, 2008. Mom and Dad were partners in life and in business. This did not leave her much time to pursue other interests. She did enjoy cooking for her family, baking, tending to her flowers and reading. For a number of years after the business was sold she continued to offer her knowledge and support to the new owners. In her later years she filled her days with coffee or lunch out with friends, bible study and was always delighted when her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren would stop by to spend time. Viewing will be held November 7, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Birchwood Funeral Chapel, prior to the service. Service will be held at 11:00 a.m., with interment to follow at Heritage Cemetery. Reception at Birchwood Funeral Chapel following interment.
If friends so desire, donations in memory of Helen may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation. Special thanks to our sister Cheryl for always being there when mom needed assistance.
