Helen Barbara Marek (nee Pataluck) passed peacefully September 17, 2022 at East Gate Lodge in Beausejour, MB.
She was the first daughter born to Joseph and Angella (Nellie Urbanski) Pataluck.
She was predeceased by her parents, a brother and three sisters and husband John who she was married to for 69 years.
She is survived by her sister Marg Rideout (Trenton, ON) and Beverly Schroeder (100 Mile House, BC). Also survived by daughters Rosemarie Wong (Jack) of Winnipeg and Janice Usry (Johnie) from Toronto, ON.
Babchi and Gigi were the greatest grandparents to Scott (Monique), Darren (Lucy) and Keith Wong along with great grandparents to Dylan and Morgan Wong.
Helen was a hard working person who loved making traditional dishes for her family and friends. Also her gardens were her joy. She enjoyed crocheting, knitting and needlepoint. Her “Labors of Love” are still treasured by family and friends.
As per Helen’s wishes there will be no service. A private remembrance will be held at a later date.
Special thank you’s to the excellent staff at East Gate Lodge who were always willing to get hugs from Helen.
