Helen Irene Ramani

23 August, 194923 March, 2020

Helen Ramani, passed away from cancer March 23rd 2020 at home, survived by her husband, Ken Moore.

Born Helen Dewick in Oliver BC in 1949 and still close to her mother’s Woodworth family, she worked for the BC Buildings Corporation and later in Ottawa for EDS before coming to Sidney BC. She married Floyd Beavers and much later, Fulvio Ramani, who predeceased her. She married Ken in 2008 and they were good together to the end. Her friends number into the hundreds because she has always been friendly, energetic and willing to help. Bowling, bridge games, hiking, biking, stitch-and-chat, Peninsula Newcomers, volunteering at the Shoal Centre to help with computer problems, singing in a choir (Sweet Adelines group in Ottawa, Via Choralis here), playing ukulele in class and in sing-alongs, participating in her yoga group, editing and helping publish two memoirs and being busy every day as Strata Council president and part-time gardener. For all that, she was comfortable alone, reading, learning and organizing music, playing solitaire. Like a daughter, she kept an eye on her older friends, Alberta and Esme every week and very close, like a sister, to her friend Angela. Dearly loved and greatly missed. And I, her husband, am so glad I got to tell her every day how beautiful she was. We’ll have a remembrance get-together in May when the Wuhan virus is folding.

I worked with Helen in SHL. I remember her very fondly as the most lovely and kind-hearted and grounded woman. Truly one of the rare bright lights in the world, I am deeply saddened to hear of her passing. Sympathies to her husband, extended family, friends and community who will so sharply feel her loss.
p.s. what a beautiful picture -- captures all that was Helen!
