LATCHFORD, Helen (Nee Stankowski) It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Helen Latchford. Helen passed away on January 11, 2018 in her 92nd year after a short illness. She was a bright light in the lives of all who knew her. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Orval Latchford. She is sadly missed by her children Gary (Marilyn), Wayne (Susan), Lynn and Elaine; her grandchildren Teresa (Carl), Matthew (Nicole), Tracey (Darcy), and Kaitlynn; her sweet great granddaughter Clairissa, and extended family and friends around the world. Helen was born on a farm in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, one of eleven children. Looking for adventure, she took a train to Toronto at the young age of 17 years to live with her sister Mary. She loved going down to Sunnyside and was literally swept off her feet by Orval on the dance floor at the Palais Royale on Lakeshore Blvd. A long time Pickering resident, Helen enjoyed a good laugh, family gatherings, vegetable gardening, baking, pickling, lawn and regular bowling, 'Red Hats' lunches and listening to Engelbert Humperdinck. She especially enjoyed cheering on her children and grandchildren and celebrating their successes. Helen didn't drive but she was an eager passenger for road trips around town with Hilda. Friends are invited to a Memorial Celebration of Life on January 21, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 117 Woodview Drive, Pickering. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
