Mme Helen Lancheres née Postojenko

On May 9th, 2021, at 91 years of age, Helen Lancheres nee Postojenko, our beloved Mama, Baba, sister, and aunt, passed away peacefully of natural causes surrounded by family at the Lakeshore General Hospital after the briefest of stays.
She was a wonderful person, courageous, resourceful, and kind to everyone. A very intelligent woman who came to Canada after the Second World War, she taught herself English with her children's school books. She had an inquisitive mind and she loved classical music, ballet, and reading. She was a caring mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend who will be sorely missed.
She leaves behind her two sons, Vladimir (Marthe) and George (Joanne), her two grandsons, Eric and Philippe, her dear sister, Marussia, her two nieces, Olga and Tanya, and a great-niece, Maggie.
