HUPPIE, Helen Philimine


Helen Huppie

September 5, 1936 – March 8, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Helen Huppie, on March 8, 2021 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital.

Helen is survived by her daughter Darlene (Larry) Heidt of Houston, Texas; sons David (Mary) of Abbotsford, British Columbia and Lyle (Susan) of Edmonton, Alberta; her grandchildren Tracy (Lauren), Candice (Matt), Kristy, Brent, Derek, and Kaylita; her great-grandchildren Kristen, Daylen, Lilie, and Milo; sisters Betty Campbell and Joanne (Dee) Higgins; her brother Robert (Janet) Hunter; as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband James; sons Wade and Larry; granddaughter Shelley Anne; great-grandson Evan; brothers Raymond and James; sister Noreen; and her parents George and Ann Hunter.

Our mother loved having company and talking on the phone for hours. She was an avid crocheter and liked playing cards. She travelled to many places throughout her lifetime. Every year she spent six months of the winter in Houston, Texas. Helen had many great accomplishments throughout her life, but the one she was most proud of was her family and friendships. There are many memories we have of her and we will carry these today, tomorrow, and the days to come.

Memorial donations are gratefully accepted to the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
