In 1952 she married Bert, her best friend. They returned to Melville and joined her brother Harold at Sier’s Department Store, a business started by her father in 1937. The business continued for 35 more years until she and Bert retired in 1987 and moved to Regina.
Helen was a friendly, happy person. She loved crafts, cooking, baking, entertaining and sports in her youth. She spent many happy years at the cottage at Melville Beach and at Clear Lake with her family.
