Helen Dorothy Calder Sines, much loved wife of the late William Calder (1977) and the late John Sines (2009) passed away with her family by her side at the Chatham-Kent Hospice on Friday August 13, 2021.  She will be missed greatly by her children Marion & Bob Thompson of Windsor and Robert Calder of Essex, by her grandchildren Chrisandra & Scott Rollins and Paul & Rachel Mardegan, and by her great grandchildren Brinlee and Avery Rollins.  She will also be missed fondly by John’s children Lynda & Don Deschamps, Stephen Sines and Jackie Kay (late Gordie) and their children Whitney Kay, Amanda Kay, Elizabeth Deschamps, Erica Deschamps, Christopher Sines and Gregory Sines (predeceased by Meghan Kay and Trevor Deschamps).

Helen was born 97 years ago in Walkerville to James & Georgina Lynd.  She worked for many years for Revenue Canada.  Her retirement years brought her from Sudbury to Rondeau Park.  After John passed away, she moved to Blenheim.  She was a kind and caring soul who made friends wherever she went.  She will be missed by her church family at Glad Tidings Community Church in Blenheim.

It was Helen’s wish that cremation take place with a Celebration of Life to be held at a later date in Glad Tidings Church.

Friends wishing to remember her with a memorial donation are asked to consider Glad Tidings Church or a charity of your choice.

Helen was a wonderful women, who put a smile on everyone face. She always cared for those she meet and seen on every Sunday at church. Deepest condolences to her family.

Our prayers and sympathy go out to you. We met Helen at church and I had wonderful times with Helen playing games at Morpeth and her apartment. Last fall we made plans for a good game of Hand and Foot when Covid was over. She was a sweet lady who will be truly missed in this community.

Sincere condolences.🙏 From Bob and Joanne(Rumble) Gillespie & Nina Rumble Snake.

Helen will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Many times, we have walked in to church to see her greeting people at the door right up until the Covid pandemic. She was a great supporter of many of the ministries in our church as well. We'll miss seeing her smiling face but we take comfort in the knowledge that she's in a better place. Take care, Helen. See you again someday.

We admired Helen for her smiles caring and stamina whether playing shuffleboard or cards. RIP Helen
