December 24, 2022
On December 24, 2022 heaven’s gate opened to welcome home God’s faithful servant, Helen MacKenrod. A loving mum, nana, aunt, sister-in-law, friend. She has been an inspiration to us all.
Helen was predeceased by her daughter Cindy Sturwold, 2003 (Stan) and is survived by her daughter Sandy Tipton, grandchildren Sarah Bennett (Parker), Jeff Tipton (Jodi), Jodie Sturwold, Sierra Sturwold, Dr. Nichole Sturwold (Michael Collins), and Tyler Sturwold, great-grandchildren Kaitlyn Bennett, Courtney Bennett, and Liam Jacob Collins, her brother-in-law Wally Harder, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mum was a wonderful example of a Christian; loving, kind, generous, always a willing helper. She was a longtime member of Abbotsford Baptist Church, serving in various roles. Mum always enjoyed company and was known for preparing many delicious meals.
We will all miss you Mum/Nana. Till we are all together again.
Thank you to all staff at Menno Hospital, West 2, for their compassionate, loving care during these past 3 ½ years. Special thanks to Dr. R. Dalzell.
A graveside service followed by a celebration of life was held January 6, 2023.
