GLOVER, Helen May

Peacefully at Lakeridge Health, in Oshawa on March 22, 2020, Helen, at the age of 86.  Loving wife of William “Bill” of 65 years.  Loving mother of Susan (Wietze) and Janice, and predeceased by her son, Robert.    Dear grandmother of David (Cheryl), Eric (Danielle), Zanna (Kerry) and Zachery (Jessica).  Great-grandmother of Devon, Alana, Abigail, Avery, Chloe, Scarlet, Ava, Bruce, Charles and Drew.  Lovingly remembered by Janice Gatto.  Predeceased by her parents, brother, sister and a granddaughter.  Your mother is always with you; she’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street and she’s the cool hand on your brow when you are not well.  Your mother lives inside your laughter and is crystallized in every teardrop.  She is the place you came from, your first home, the map you follow with every step that you take.  She is your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can separate you; not time, not space, not even death will separate you from your mother.  We will always carry you inside each of us with much love and gratitude.  Due to current circumstances cremation will take place with a Celebration of Life at a later date.  Online condolences can be shared at

    I’m so very sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. She was a special lady who was loved by all that knew her. I will miss our chats and seeing you and Bill hand in hand as you’d stroll down to the waterfront for happy hour at Barkwick. My deepest condolences to Bill, Susan, Janice and all of her family.

    Her brother Bruce, sister in law Carolyn and niece Sandra are sending their deepest sympathy to Bill, Susan, Janice and families.  Such a difficult time for all.  Bill and Helen were always together from the time they met.  The Fab "6" Bill and Helen, Barney and Jean and Bruce and Carolyn spent many years enjoying Saturday night dinners at Honest Ed's in Toronto, summer weekends at Barney and Jean's cottage, travelling together to many places in the US and camping experiences.  Those memories remain with all and are talked about often. Everytime you came home from Florida or before you went to Florida, I made every effort to visit you at Janice's place and loved catching up.  Rest in Peace Aunt Helen - you will never be forgotten!

    Bill, Susan and Janice
    I am sending prayers and gentle hugs at this time. You included beautiful words in the obituary about what a mother is (and a wife, too). Hold onto your memories because they will never leave you. I will remember times spent with her when you lived on Central Park and times we went to the cottage.  Sincerely Michelle
