It is with great sadness and heaviness of heart that we announce the passing of Helena Rosalie Toner (nee Fife/Fyfe) on July 18 in Grand Falls, New Brunswick. Predeceased by her dearly loved husband of 42 years, Joyner William Toner, in 1996, Helena died peacefully and free of pain. Born in Edmundston, NB on January 3, 1925, Helena was the youngest of ten children. Her father, Herbert Fife, died when Mom was three and her mother, Florence MacKillian Fife, died in 1952. She was predeceased by brothers Garfield, Linwood, Emery, Jim, Carl, Elmer and Guy and sisters Bernice and Irene (Horncastle). Helena and Joyner met at a Legion of Mary meeting, married a year later and moved to the farm in Gillespie Settlement. She was very active in 4-H and in the Catholic Women's League and was also involved in lay formation and with the church choir. Helena will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by many including her daughters, Edel (Richard) of Burnaby, BC, Jane (Eric) of Grand Falls, NB, Lori (Ken) of Lynden, ON and sons John (Heather) of O'Leary, PI, Paul (Martina) of Grand Bay, NB and Alan (Andree) of Lower Sackville, NS and as well as her much loved grandchildren Katie (Ben), Kerri (Joel), Emma, Brenna, Kylie and Mitchell. Helena was a warm, gregarious and engaging person, quick to make a joke, to share a laugh or a song, always willing to share what she had with others. The world is a less bright place for her passing but heaven all the richer. The family wishes to thank the staff of the Grand Falls Manor for their kind and sensitive care of Helena. The folks at the Victoria Glen Manor, Dr. Peter Moore and Dr. Shawn Blunston and the nurses from the Extra, Mural Team in Grand Falls. The family also wishes to thank the Grand Falls Home Care Providers (Service d'aide à la famille). A celebration of Helena's life and faith was held on Tuesday July 22nd at 11:00 am at the Assumption Roman Catholic Church in Grand Falls, NB, with Father Michael Toner officiating. He was assisted by Father William Rice, Father Ghislain Remillard, Father Roger Dionne, Father Pierre Thibodeau and Father Gilbert Doddatto. Pallbearers were Herman Van Kessel, Jeffrey Toner, Joel Arsenault, Ben Andrews, Mitchell Toner and John Toner. Interment followed in the Assumption Cemetery. Helena loved the Lord and her strong faith gives us all hope of new life. Arrangements were by O'Regan's Funeral Home, Grand Falls.
