Barclay, Helen Frances (nee Morrison). Following a long and courageous battle with cardio-pulmonary disease, Helen passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of December 29th at St. Mary's Hospital (Montreal) a week shy of her 78th birthday. A long-time employee of the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association and the Fraser-Hickson Library, an active member of St. Monica's Parish and a resident of St. Patrick's Square. The daughter of Esther Love and Neil Morrison, she was raised in a family of strong women, including her Aunts Helen, Florence and Ethel Love. Predeceased by her husband Charles Barclay in 1980, she was greatly loved and will be keenly missed by her son Neil (Toronto), cousins Elizabeth MacDiarmid (Ottawa), Elaine Stoicoiu (Calgary), Esther Cuthbertson (Plantation FL), Gordon Love (Edmonton) and Ruth Breton (Burlington ON); in-laws Mary Barclay, Susan and Pat Devlin and June Barclay; and scores of nieces, nephews and cousins. Throughout her life Helen was blessed with a multitude of friends, including two who were with her for more than seventy years, Norma Boissonneault and Mary-Lou Dooling and their families. In recent years she was watched over with love and care by Hope Garneau, Connie Dodge, Mary O'Toole, Mary McDonald, Aileen Kilbertus, Evelyn Adam and Pat McKeown. Grateful thanks to all the health-care workers who laboured mightily to help her; to the NDG Volunteers' Bureau for their dedicated assistance; and to Sara Lederman and Paula Habib of the CLSC René Cassin for their gentle ministrations.
