It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Helena Marie Beskau. Helena passed on August 27th at the age of 72.
Survived by her three children, Mike (Jessica), Shaun and Nicole (Tim), and five grandchildren, Brandi, Xavier, Tatiana, Keira and Owen. She also leaves behind brothers and sisters, nephews and nieces all of whom will miss her dearly.
Helena was born in Austria, grew up in Prince Rupert, and moved to Vancouver in 1971 where she raised her children. She moved back to Prince Rupert in her retirement to be closer to family and lifelong friends.
She had a successful career working in health records at the BC Cancer Agency in Vancouver and volunteered many long hours at the BC Crisis Line, helping those who struggled with mental health. She made an immeasurable difference in many people’s lives.
She was loved and will be missed by her friends and family. She was a proud mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.
A Celebration Of Life will be held on Sunday, September 12th at the Prince Rupert Royal Canadian Legion at 1 PM.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Helena’s name to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
