Helen Renete Kroeker
1910 – June 24, 2005
Helen passed away peacefully at Golden Ears Retirement Centre at the age of 95 years. She was predeceased by her first husband Bill Goddard in 1979, her daughter Jo-Anne Pernoski in 2002, her granddaughter Dawne Jerstad in 2003, her daughter-in-law Mary Goddard in 1998. Also by her second husband Ben Kroeker. Helen was a great mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great grandmother. She is survived by her son Ken Goddard, Port Alberni, her son-in-law Bob Pernoski, Pitt Meadows, nephew George Cole, Maple Ridge, plus seven grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, and five great great grandchildren. A thank you to Dr. Wannenburg and Dr. Wasti for attending to Helen. A very special heartfelt thank you to all the staff at Golden Ears Retirement Centre, for the years of wonderful care and kindness to Helen, also they showed to the family. A special thank you to someone that became like a sister to Helen while they were both residents at G.E.R.C. Thank you Ivy.
I do believe Helen was looking forward to a joyful reunion with her Bill, Jo-Anne, Dawne, and Mary. Helen’s ashes along with Bill’s and Jo-Anne’s will be taken to Vancouver Island, placed in a plot together for a final resting place.
God saw you getting tired
So he opened his loving arms
And whispered “Come to me”
