Helen retired from her 23-year career with the Saskatchewan Government and fell in love a second time when she met Charles (Chuck) Milligan. They were married in 1900 and had nearly 20 years together. Chuck passed away in January 2010. Helen loved dancing, music, bowling and fun times with family and friends. She was an avid bowler for many years and enjoyed playing the clarinet with the Regina Lions Band. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful staff at Providence Place for the terrific care and kindness they gave to Helen.
