Helen Purcell


With her keen intellect and patient persistance in unlocking the most complex of puzzles - either leisurely or professionally - Helen continued to learn throughout her life, enhancing the world around her.

With her innate generosity of spirit, she consistently gave back to her community through her volunteerism, yet in no place did she have more of an indelible impact than at home.

She will be dearly missed and forever remembered by all those she loved and who loved her unequivocally in return.
