Condolences to the family of Helen Margaret Veronica Windle (nee Bonertz)



Helen Margaret Veronica
(nee Bonertz)

February 1, 1950 - November 2, 2019

It is with a heavy heart that we announce on November 2, 2019 that Helen passed away peacefully surrounded by family. Helen was predeceased by her husband Gregory, her parents Francis and Annie; and her best friend and sister Leeanne. She is survived by her three children: Brett, Rebecca (Steven) and Allison (Phil); her grandchildren: Isobel, Sarah and Jamie; furry friend Espin; her siblings: Jeannette (Bob deceased), Shirlee (Stan), Marjorie, Kathy, Jim (Val), Judy (Lynn), Richard (Carol), Annette, Donna (Dawn), Denise (Bo); seven sisters-in-law, seven brothers-in-law and many Bonertz and Windle nieces and nephews.
Helen grew up on the family farm in Twin Butte and enjoyed many adventures with both her Mother and her siblings. Once they moved to Pincher Creek, she met Greg and married in 1972. The adventures continued as her family grew and the love she had for her children and grandchildren was unmatched.
Helen retired from nursing with Bethany Care Centre after 20+ years of service and made friends with all her patients through her sassy remarks, jokes, killer laugh and smile.
Her ashes will be laid to rest with her mother and sister in Pincher Creek, Alberta. A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at Snodgrass Funeral Chapel, 1101 Main St E, Pincher Creek AB at 1:00 p.m. Donations can be made in Helen’s memory to a charity of your own choice.
