On Saturday, December 30, 2017, after a prolonged stay in hospital, Mrs. Helen Parliament (nee Somerville) gently passed away to reunite with her sweetheart, Bruce.

Helen will be fondly remembered by Gladys Somerville, Teresa Somerville, Eleanor Parliament, Beatrice Parliament, Enid and Tom Wetheral, and her nieces and nephews. Helen is predeceased by her parents, Van Aldred Somerville and Ella Mae Wood, her brothers Mel and Roly, her brothers-in-law Ted, Ken, and Eric Parliament and her sisters-in-law Winifred and Verla Parliament. Her children are deeply grateful for the kindness, consideration and compassion Helen received from the TCU care team on A3 at the Civic hospital in the last weeks of her life.
