February 5, 1938 – July 9, 2022
In loving memory ~
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Helen Joan Rogers. Helen passed away peacefully at the age of 84, surrounded by her loving family on July 9th, 2022, at Royal Inland Hospital.
Helen was born in Creston BC on February 5th 1938. Helen was the oldest of 4 children born to Vernon and Margaret Murray (both deceased). She grew up in Creston until she moved to Vancouver to attend UBC. This is where she met Glyn. Helen and Glyn were married in 1959. Helen obtained her teaching degree in 1960.
Helen is predeceased by her husband Glyn (2016), her daughter Cathy (1991), and youngest brother Bob (2021). Helen is survived by her sons Ian (Karen and Clayton) and Neal (Lori, Alana, Braden and Cari), her sister Peggy (Jim) Waldbauer, brother Dennis Murray and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
As a retired teacher, Helen touched many lives. She continued to learn through her own life taking up golfing, sudoku and recently wordle. Until recently she was an avid bridge player, adventurous cook, enjoyed gardening, fishing, trips to the casino, and spending time with her friends and family with a cold glass of Chardonnay.
The family would like to extend sincere gratitude to Dr. Dickinson for his continued amazing care since Helen moved to Kamloops in 2018. Thank you to Sherri for her kindness and competence. We would also like to thank all the specialists, the Heart Function Clinic, Imaging, and lab staff who cared for Helen over the years, and the nurses in the ER.
Finally, we would like to thank the amazing nursing staff of ICU and the kind words and wisdom of Dr. Tim Schmidt.
Please join us in a final farewell to Helen on July 23rd 2022 at 2:00pm. Service will be held at Schoening’s Funeral Services in Kamloops BC. For those who will not be able to attend, there will be an online service.
In Lieu of flowers, please donate to Royal Inland Hospital – Cardiac Care.
