Helena Francis Piotto



Helena “Helen” was born in Allan, Saskatchewan to Jerome and Elizabeth Boechler, the youngest of nine children. She passed away unexpectedly but peacefully at the Jasper Place Long Term Care Centre in Edmonton the night of September 12, 2012.

Helen is survived by her partner of 38 years, Patrick Gathercole; daughter, Lorelei (Jamie) of California; brother, Al (Enid) of Saskatoon; as well as numerous nieces and nephews and many dear friends.

She was raised in Saskatoon before moving to Vancouver, Calgary and then Edmonton, where she resided for the past 38 years. Helen had many passions in her life - singing and performing; her love of dogs; her sponsored children through Children International; and her faith in God. She will be remembered for her spirited nature, fortitude, determination, and especially her great sense of humour.

A memorial service will take place at a later date.

Those wishing to honor Helen’s memory are encouraged to make a donation to a child or animal welfare organization.

In Loving Memory of
Helena Francis Piotto
(Maiden: Boechler)
