Helen Marie Traill (Brown)

June 17, 1934 – March 25, 2017

Mom was born in Saint John NB and lived there until she began her Nursing Career. The lure of travel drew her to join Trans Canada Airlines as a flight attendant. It was here that she met her husband of almost 60 years, Grant. During their years together mom and dad enjoyed their hobby farm and travelling. They spent hours driving through provinces and states in their motorhome. They also looked forward to many wonderful travel adventures. Their favorite spot – the beaches of Fiji! Mom spent many years with the Langley Ladies Curling club. She enjoyed great friendships and many laughs with her Teammates during club play and Bonspiel weekends. She was also a member of the Ladies Golf at the Langley Golf Center. Mom leaves behind her husband Grant; daughter Dawn (Steve) Riley and son David; grandchildren Alanna (David) Reith, Erinn Riley (Nemanja), Kaitlin Riley (Mark) and Connor Riley (Allison): and a great-granddaughter Madilyn. She is remembered by a large family in New Brunswick as well as many family and friends Coast to Coast. Family will be having a private ceremony at a later date.
