Helen Siple

Siple – Helen
It is with immense sadness and loss that her family wish to announce her
passing after a short stay in hospital in her 85th year on Sunday July 11,
2021. Loving and supportive wife to Raymond for 66 years, she was the mother
of 5, Cindy (Jim) Cockram of Ottawa, Christine (Bob) Haberer of Norwich,
Allen (Amber) of Fingal, Connie (Kevin) Troutman of Cornwall, and Richard
(Margaret) of St. Thomas. Daughter of the late Roger Stanley Ratcliffe she
is still survived by her mother Janette, aged 103, of Woodstock. Predeceased
by her grandson Justin Siple (July 11, 2007) whom she shared a birthday with
and now sadly a shared passing. She was a proud grandmother of 15 and a
loving great grandmother of 13. She is also survived by sisters Joyce Laur,
Verna Jeanne McIntyre, Mildred Parkin and brother Bill Ratcliffe, as well as
many nieces and nephews. She was a staunch fan of the Toronto Blue Jays and
an avid watcher of NASCAR, especially Chevy drivers. We will all miss this
wonderful woman from our lives. One day we will visit Elk Lake
again together. Love Raymond

Thursday at 2:00pm followed by interment in Sparta Cemetery. Visitation will be
held prior to the service from 12:00pm-2:00pm. In lieu of flowers donations
