Helen Agnes Dauk
22 January , 1921 – 13 May , 2019
Mrs. Helen Agnes Dauk (nee Loehr) of Kamloops BC, (born January 22, 1921, Humboldt, Sask) passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family, May 13, 2019 in Kamloops at the age of 98 years.
Helen was predeceased by her husband Carl Dauk (2002), son Arnie Dauk (2012) and daughter, Genny O’Connor (2017). She is survived by her seven other children. Char (Gerry) Herkel (Qualicum Beach, BC), Phil Dauk (Nanaimo, BC), son-in-law John O’Connor (Oliver, BC), Mary Ann Dauk (Kamloops, BC), Mike (Carolyn) Dauk (Kamloops, BC), Bernie (Mike) Crawford (Kamloops, BC), Matt (Gwen) Dauk (Kamloops, BC), and Dori (Rob) Godzic (Calgary, Alta).
Helen was a loving and very proud grandmother to sixteen grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren. Helen is also survived by her brother Leo (Joan) Loehr (Kamloops, BC) and numerous nieces and nephews.
Helen married Carl in Muenster, Sask. on November 17, 1942 and moved to Kamloops with Carl and daughter Char in 1943. Together they were loving and patient parents to nine, lively children. Both Mom and Dad were active member of the Sacred Heart Cathedral Catholic community; Mom for many years with the CWL and Legion of Mary. She also taught catechism classes for many years.
Mom had a wonderful and quirky sense of humour and always had time to play and help out her children. She taught them to pray and have faith and to love each other unconditionally. Typical mom, she would fret and worry about us all, even after all her ‘kids’ had grown up; some having children of their own.
After Dad died in 2002, Mom learned to be more independent and kept busy joining yoga, volunteering at Ponderosa Lodge and continuing with the Legion of Mary. She continued to drive until she was 88 years old.
Since 2012, Mom has been living at Ridgeview Lodge. Many, many thanks go out to the staff there who gave such professional care to our mother. She was truly loved by all whom she touched and will be sorely missed. Also, thanks go to Dr. Wynne for his kind care of mom while she was at the Lodge.
Prayers will be held on Tuesday, May 21st at Sacred Heart Cathedral at 8 p.m. Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, May 22nd at Sacred Heart Cathedral at 11 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society would be appreciated.

My thoughts and prayers to my Dauk/Loehr cousins and their families on the passing of your mom, grandmother and great-grandmother, sister, and auntie.
I have wonderful memories as a kid of our summer trips to Kamloops and your parents giving natures. They always welcomed the Hydes and gave us kids a place where we could just be kids. Their welcome for me and my brothers was a blessing they may not have known about.
Their visits to Saskatoon were always a summer treat to look forward to. Your mom was especially kind to my Gord and he loved her for it. I can't find the words to tell you how much she will be missed but I know she's with your dad (uncle Carl), Arnie & Genny and family.
Lots of love from, Loranna and Gord & Natalie (Gordon & Ethan), and Steven.

To the Dauk and Loehr families...
I was saddened to learn of Mrs. Dauk's passing when Dori messaged me the other day. I have many fond memories of her from my childhood and teenage years and spent a lot of time at the Dauk household. I first met her as my catechism teacher in grade 4 and then connected with her again when I met her lovely daughter Dori in grade 8. We soon became inseparable and the Dauk home became a second one for me. After moving away, I saw her every once in awhile and I always looked forward to exchanging Christmas cards during the festive season. I was lucky enough to even see her at her 90th birthday celebration. My sincerest and heartfelt condolences to all the Dauk and Loehr families and most of all to you my dear friend Dori. There aren't enough words to say how truly sorry I am for your loss but know that your mom will be with you always. She was such a warm caring soul who always welcomed me into her home with open arms and a smile.❤ RIP Mrs Dauk....you're home.
