<div itemprop="description">Philosophy states, “All things do their work and then subside to their rest. They have fulfilled their destiny. This is an eternal law. Though the body perishes, they suffer no harm and return to their origin and eternal rest, and endure forever”. <br><br>Our Baba Helen understood this law, and while her health permitted, she did her work to the ultimate degree, faithfully and super conscientiously, and we all benefitted from her industry. <br><br>She wasted not one minute and not one penny (learned through the Great Depression when admission to the local Saturday night dance cost a nickel), but she was generous to us all. She also practiced recycling long before recycling became mandatory. <br><br>Born to parents of a pioneer family (Nicholas and Joanna Ganchar), she has now been released from a life that became debilitating.<br><br>She was predeceased by her husband, Andrew; and all her siblings, Joanna, Joseph, Michael, Katie, Frances, and Tina. <br><br>Baba Helen leaves behind two children, Eugene (Rose), and Nadia; three grandchildren, Gregory, James, and Kathryn; and great-grandchildren, Manton, Jennifer, Max, Berkeley, Finn, and Lauren, who send prayers of gratitude and appreciation to a Baba who worked relentlessly a full time job at City Hospital Dietary office, and on her days off gardening, helping at the farm, babysitting, and, together with her husband, constantly hosting family and friends at her table and keeping an immaculate home. <br><br>Always very frugal and astute with finances, she and her husband were able to help their family, and to travel around the world. <br><br>It is said “the harder we work the more we live”, and now those values are handed down to the new generations. <br><br>The Divine Liturgy will celebrated at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 16, 2016 at St. Volodymyr Villa Chapel, 3102 Louise Street, Saskatoon with celebrant, Rt. Rev. Fr. Vladimir Mudri. Interment in Woodlawn Catholic Cemetery will follow. <br><br>To share memories and condolences, visit “Obituaries”. Arrangements entrusted to Greg Lalach, Park Funeral Chapel, 306.244.2103.<br></div>
