Helen Warren-Golden

The family of Helen Warren-Golden of Swift Current are saddened to announce her passing on August 9, 2018 at 99 years of age. Helen (nee Taylor) grew up on a homestead farm near Beechy, Saskatchewan, the oldest of 8 children. After she completed grade 12 by correspondence, she stayed with her mother's family in Carleton Place, Ontario and attended business college. She then got her first job in Ottawa and continued to work there during the war years. In 1947, she met and married veteran Ray Warren, and in 1955 they moved back to Saskatchewan, settling first in North Battleford and then in Swift Current, where she worked until retirement at the Swift Current Mental Health Clinic. Ray passed away in 1969, and in 1983 she married Dudley Golden. Helen always said she had an interesting life and she brought her two daughters up to be as independent as she had always been. She loved her church, bowling, reading, her clubs such as the art gallery study group, the UCW and the Rebekah's Lodge, charitable work with Amnesty International and Save the Children, travel with her good friend Margaret Anderson, and above all, her family. Right until her last days she loved to see pictures of what her grandchildren and great grandchildren were up to. Helen is survived by her daughters Dianne (Bruce, Travis, Cody) and Rhonda (David, Christopher, Kendra) and three siblings, Maretta, Gordon and Keith (Eleanor). Her extended family, including Travis, Cody and their families and the Golden grandchildren, were the joy of her life. Thanks to Dr. Ibrahim and to all the kind people who cared for her at Riverview Village and Cypress House. Funeral service will be at First United at 2:00 on August 16. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Art Gallery of Swift Current or Save the Children Canada. Warren's Funeral Home was entrusted with the arrangements.  For further information, call 306-773-8831 or visit our website at www.warrensfuneralhome.com and express your sympathy to family members in our book of condolences.
