Mary Helen (Clendenning) Whalley

March 21, 1918June 17, 2020

Mom passed away peacefully on June 17th at the age of 102. Helen is predeceased by her beloved husband Richard Whalley (March 24th, 2010), and siblings Jack and Phyllis. She is survived by her dear sister Marjorie, brother in law Terry and sister in law Joan. Loving mother and mother in law of Judith and Martyn Greene, and Jocelyn and John Bridgeman. Proud grandmother of Natalie (David) and Alison Greene, Sean (Nicole) and Christopher (Megan) Bridgeman. Adoring great-grandmother to Evelyn, Evan and Nolan.

Mom will be remembered for her strength of character, her dedication to her family and friends, as well as her winning spirit. An avid bridge player, golfer, curler and in her later years a lawn bowling champ, she also loved creating wonderful meals, keeping a lovely home and dedicated much of her time sewing, crocheting and knitting for charity and her grandchildren.

A special thanks to her dedicated caregivers Eunice, Cathy and Doris who buoyed her spirits especially during the last few months.

In lieu of flowers a donation in her memory can be made to a women’s shelter of your choice or in Montreal to her favorite charity Dans La Rue.

Mrs Whalley always had a twinkle in her eye and an infectious grin. We enjoyed seeing her at the cottage or in town and she was always gracious when we would meet. How amazing to have lived more than a century. Condolences to the family on your loss.
