Helen was the last surviving of seven children born to Robert and Ellen Carter of Leicester, England. Cherished mother of Jane Palmer (Barney Bangs), and Sarah Palmer (Walter James). Dear grandmother of Ryan McCormick (Melissa Fishman) and Rob McCormick (Karolina Sztajerowska). Predeceased by David Palmer, (formerly of Winchester, England), her beloved husband and best friend for over sixty years.

She leaves behind a legacy of love and laughter and many fond memories. The family would like to thank the Palliative Care Team at University Hospital in London, Ontario for all of their compassionate care.
