Oliver, Helen Elizabeth (nee Smith)
“The stars are not wanted now,
Put out every one
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun
Pour away the ocean and
Sweep up the woods
For nothing now
Can ever come to any good.”
On Saturday, July 21, 2018, the world, in a small way, felt the passing of Helen Elizabeth Oliver (nee Smith). A woman whose external beauty was only surpassed by the beauty and kindness that resided within her. A beauty and kindness that was experienced by all those who were fortunate to touch her life.
If she had just been granted a little more time, Helen would gladly have written a note, or sent a card, to thank everyone for being a part of her life. Everyone from her immediate family, her mother Ethel, children Ron, Janie, Tracey and grandson Brandon, to her extended family at the bank, post office, grocery store, gas station, retirement home, pharmacy… anyone, anywhere, and everywhere she travelled on her daily route.
Helen’s beauty was lost on no one and her kindness knew no bounds.
There will be no public or private service – only a simple request in Helen’s memory. Please take the time to write a little note, give a gift (no matter how small) or speak some kind words to all the people who touch your life on a daily basis.
“I love you to the moon and back” Helen
