Obituary

It is with mixture of sadness and thankfulness that the family of Helen O’Neill announces her passing, on Wednesday December 30th, at the age of 83, after contracting COVID-19.

Helen was the devoted wife of Jim O’Neill, and the proud mom of Craig (Laura) and Gary (Lynn). She was a loving grandma to Katie (Calvin), Jeff, Sophie, Isaac, Abby and Zoe, and great Grandma to Noah and Charlie.

She was predeceased by her husband Jim and sister Ginny, both of whom she missed dearly.

Helen will always be remembered for her strong Christian faith. Up to her last days she took great comfort in her Lord and Saviour Jesus. Even with Alzheimer’s disease stealing many of her memories she was still able to recite scriptures and songs that shaped her life.

Mom, Grandma, Helen, Mrs. O, had an impact on many lives. So many people have stories of her encouraging words, the help she provided and the difference her care made for them. She was a shining example of how to how to ‘Love your Neighbour’. She will be missed greatly.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Walden Circle Retirement Residence for their care of her over the last few years.

An online service to celebrate Helen’s life and give glory to God will be held on Saturday January 9th at 2:00pm.

Donations to the Alzheimer’s Society or Kerr Street Mission in memory of Helen would be appreciated by the family.

Thursday October 1, 2020 Tablets for Impact Dominican Republic

At Clarkson Community Church, we support the Lighthouse School in the Dominican Republic.  As a result of COVID, their schooling is going online and they need tablets for their students to continue learning.  We would love your help to make this happen.

Here are some ways you can help:

  1. We are challenging our kids and youth to make encouraging lawn signs and painted rocks for people in your neighbourhood.  For every photo of an encouraging rock or lawn sign that includes #lovefromclarkson that you email to lovefromclarkson@clarksonchurch.ca we will donate $5 (up to $2000).  You can then stick the lawn sign in someone’s lawn or drop the rock near someone’s doorstep or on a local path.

  2. Parents, we want your kids to help these students, so please find jobs for them to do around your house (or in your neighbourhood) and instead of paying them, give a donation toward Tablets for Impact Dominican Republic.  We would also love a photo or video of your kids doing these jobs so we can share the stories.

  3. We know that many of you are tired of cooking at home, so for $30 someone in our church family will make you dinner, and your $30 will go toward Tablets for Impact Dominican Republic.  You can even pay for a meal as a gift for someone else!  To sign up for a meal (or to offer to make a meal) contact Joanne Eng at lovefromclarkson@clarksonchurch.ca .

  4. You can give a donation toward these tablets by giving directly at give.iteams.ca/clarksontablets
