Rehorst, Helen (née Weitzenbauer)

January 26th, 2021

Passed away peacefully at her home, with her son, Jacob, by her side, on Tuesday, January 26th, 2021, after a two-year battle with cancer, fought bravely with courage, strength, and perseverance. She is remembered for her unwavering positivity, kindness, and desire to spread love to friends or strangers. She is survived by her children: Jacob (Joel), Matthew (Kathryn), and Kassandra (Trevor); grandchildren: Jessica, Alyssa, Mason, Lyla, Logan, and Theodore; siblings: Ralph (Sylvia), Margit (Randy), and Ingrid (Greg); nieces, Jessica and Josie; and grandnephew, Koen. Predeceased by her father Peter and mother Ann. Helen loved her family and friends more than anything; they brought her the most joy, with many friends being considered family. Her joy and warmth are truly irreplaceable. In Helen’s memory, her family encourages you to treat everyone with kindness and compassion. A small private service will be held, with a celebration of Helen’s life to be held at a later date, as Helen wanted everyone she loved and shared her light with to be in one place to share memories and love. In lieu of flowers, donations are welcomed in her name to the London Regional Cancer Program:  https://lhsf.ca/ways-give/memory

JACQUELINE KELLESTINEMy heartfelt condolences to Helens family and friends. Working with Helen was a privilege. As lovely as she was on the outside, the real beauty was beneath that outer shell. I feel the world is a little darker with her absence but the sky a little brighter. I honestly can say I never met anyone like Helen. Her warmth, humor, and positivity are something to aspire to.
Jacqueline WaringMy condolences to you Jake and family. I was blessed when I met Helen at work. She became a true friend. I thought the world of her. I told her (even thou, I’m only a couple years younger) that I wanted to grow up just like her. I’m sad we won’t have our talks anymore but I will hold onto wonderful memories forever.
Steven ZugcicMy condolences to Helen's family. I worked with her at the LTC. We would often ride to work together. She was always fun to be around. I took her to range in Aylmer one time to do some target shooting. We had so much fun. I will always remember her smile and positive attitude! May she rest in peace.
Doris Charpentier Lavergne So sad to learn of Helen passing and find out that she lived in Timmins. My deepest sympathies to Inga, Magrit, Ralph and Jacob; the grandchildren, nieces,nephews. It was a chock to find out that you lived just three hours away. Helen we lost touch, but you weren't forgotten. The last time we saw each other was when you came back home to show your children where you lived as a child. I have great memories of our times playing together, going on a trip with you and your parents to see where you lived prior to Moonbeam. We had fun biking,canoeing, skating and sliding that the hill all the way to the lake. Well my old friend may you RIP.
John HummelMy sincere condolences to Jake, Kassandra and Matthew and to the Weitzenbauer and Rehorst families. She will be missed for her infectious smile and laughter and her love and support of friends and family. Keep her memories close to your hearts.
