It's with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Helen Vassos on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, in Melville, SK, at the age of 88 years.

Helen was predeceased by her husband, Gordon, sister Mary Edwards and brother Steve Antal. She will be lovingly remembered by her three children, Cindy Vassos, Marcus (Dianne) Vassos and Cletus (Lisa) Vassos; and grandchildren Alexander and Niki Donnelly, Carlie Vassos and Owen and Hilary Vassos.

Helen was born in Lestock, SK, on November 2, 1932, the daughter of Steve and Margaret Antal and the youngest of three children. She enjoyed all sports, and any spare time away from school and farming was spent curling and playing fastball. Helen moved to Melville in the early '50s and landed a job at the CN Beanery; that's where our dad laid eyes on her and said to his buddies, "I'm going to marry that woman". Later on she worked for Dr. Gellman's Dental Practice as a receptionist.

Helen and Gordon were married on May 14, 1956, and immediately began to raise a family. Her passion for sports continued, as she was an avid league bowler for most of her adult life. Helen worked as a bureau agent for the Regina Leader Post and operated a Pizzaria in the early 70s. She moved on from making pizza to helping her husband, Gordon, as owner/operator of the Bake-Rite Bakery, which they closed in the mid-'80s. Helen continued to manage the Leader Post bureau and occasionally helped with cleaning and keeping things in order at House of Hair until retirement. She was a devoted Catholic and member of The Catholic Women's League of Canada for over 50 years.

Helen found comfort in her later years spending time with her children and grandchildren and enjoying the peacefulness of being outside feeding the birds and gardening. Our mom worked tirelessly and instilled the value of hard work in all of us. We will remember our mother for her unconditional love, dedication to the community and genuine friendship with so many. She spent hours baking for family and friends over the holidays, loved listening to the radio and especially enjoyed the Roughrider football games. There is comfort knowing Mom and Dad are together again, laughing and dancing.

Thank you, Mom, for everything and all the memories we will cherish forever in our hearts.

Love you - Your Children

Our deepest condolences to Marcus, Cindy, Cletus, & all the grandchildren. Helen was a genuine kind hearted woman that will be greatly missed. We always enjoyed our visits up on the deck or in her beautiful yard that she took so much pride in. One of her funniest stories was that when she married Gordie she thought she was marrying a Greek God but he just turned out to be a Greek. I’ll sure miss your pineapple dessert Helen. Forever in our Hearts. Rest In Peace Helen till we meet again

Helen, G-ma and Chef, and the best cinnamon bun maker ever. We will miss your thoughtfulness of every special occasion and how you never missed a birthday, graduation, or anniversary. We will miss the anticipation of receiving your Christmas parcel every year and opening our box filled with your love. We are forever grateful for the memories of the past 25 years, and we will hold those in our hearts forever.
RIP G-ma️ 🧡

Sending our deepest sympathies to Cindy, Marcus, Cletus and families,
I had the pleasure of working with Helen at the Bargain Shop. Mom and I also had the pleasure of Helen's friendship for many years. Helen was a special person, quite a lady! She was loving, caring, giving, kind, compassionate, meticulious, hard working, religious, loved sports and was a lot of fun. She loved her family and often spoke of them, sharing an update or a new photo. Helen's home was adorned with family pictures, special gifts and many bowling trophies. Helen was also a gracious hostess with a gift for decorating and a flare for entertaining. A great baker and delicious cook! Over the years we spent many Christmas, New Year's Eve, Birthday celebrations and coffee dates with Helen. We always enjoyed her company and will cherish these memories! We will miss you dearly, Helen.
Marla and Hazel

Our condolences to Marcus,Cindy,and Cletus, and the rest of Helen’s family. We really enjoyed Helen’s company whenever she came out here for supper and sitting on our deck having a beer and smoking her cigarettes She always shot from the hip and said what she thought a ,very genuine lady,always a smile and welcoming lady.I remember one time ,Marcus was making us dumplings and she was telling him what he was doing wrong and how to do it.. She was holding her ground when Marcus was telling her how to make them being a chef and all .She said he didn’t know anything. Too funny..She knew a lot of Hungarian and would always say something in Hungarian and then explain what she said. Again remember those we love don’t go away,They walk beside us everyday..again. My sympathies. Bernie and Tonalee and family
