      HELEN WHITTON

      With heavy hearts, the family of Helen Olive Whitton (Casey) of Dieppe announce her passing on Sunday, October 30, 2011.

      Helen, the youngest of eight children, was born in Shediac, on March 17, 1922 to the late Edouard Casey and Sara Thibodeau.

      Helen’s passion was her family. With her husband Charlie she was a loving and supportive parent to her four children, Gary, David, Donald Whitton and Karen Maki (Richard). She was a greatly loved Grandma to Catherine and Jillian, and a cherished aunt and second mother to many nieces, nephews and friends of her children.

      Helen and Charlie were active members of the Dieppe Golden Age Club from its inception, where they spent many evenings socializing and dancing. Summers were spent camping with special friends. Following Charlie’s death in 1982, Helen continued to be a dedicated community volunteer in various capacities, and was active in darts and bowling with her "Road Runners".

      In addition to her immediate family, Helen is survived by her brother, Arthur Casey, Dartmouth, NS and by many members of the Whitton family, of whom she was very fond.

      She was predeceased by her husband, Charles, sister Patricia Gould, brothers, Alyre, Clovis, Lionel, Philip and Alphonse Casey, nephews Louis and Leo Casey, and niece Helen Catsman.

      Visitation will be held from the Chartersville Funeral Home, 363 Amirault Street, Dieppe, NB (857-1901), on Wednesday from 2 to 4 pm and from 7 to 9 pm.

      Funeral mass will be celebrated from Sainte-Thérèse Roman Catholic Church, Dieppe, NB on Thursday, November 3rd, 2011, at 11 am.

      Interment in Notre-Dame-du-Calvaire Cemetery, Dieppe, NB.
