With sorrow we announce the loss of our dear feisty little Scottish Aunt Helen McBain Russell Rowat, loving wife of the late Melville M. Rowat on March 9, 2002 in her 98th year. Helen was residing at Robertson House retirement home for the last two and a half years where she was very happy and contented, and we are so grateful for the wonderful care she was given by all the staff at Robertson House. Helen came to Canada in the late twenties leaving all her family and friends in Scotland. She resided with an aunt for the first year and gained employment with the Chateau Laurier Hotel where one of her duties was caring for the residential suite of Rt. Hon. R.B. Bennet, Prime Minister. She loved to ski, skate, step dance, and swim. She and her friends would come out to Long Island locks and that is where she met Melville, married and worked side by side with him on the farm for fifty-seven years. Mel and Helen were always a towering strength to all the family, caring for our grandparents, and giving a helping hand to our parents and all of her nieces and nephews whenever it was needed. They were both active members of Manotick United Church. Those of us left to mourn are nephew James Rowat (Barbara) and their children, Scott and Krista, nieces Rhoda Harris, Doreen Wiggins (late Cliff), great-nieces Sharon Hawkins and Calyann Williams. Predeceased by Marion Hawkins (late Laird), Karen Williams (Charles) and Jean Macdonald (Ian) of Australia. Helen's wishes were for cremation, no visitation. There will be a graveside service at time of interment of urn in the Spring. If anyone wishes to give a memorial to the charity of your choice or Manotick United Church it would be appreciated by the family. The Ottawa Citizen, 11-03-2002
