Helen was born in the R. M. of Rossburn, Manitoba on February 18, 1925 to Frank and Mary (Dunits) Zimmerman.  She was the youngest of eight children.  Helen attended Marconi School. 

Helen married Roy Budz on July 7, 1947 in Rossburn, Manitoba.  Helen was a very faithful Catholic all of her life.  Helen and Roy farmed in the Solsgirth area and worked hard on the farm.  She enjoyed tending to the chickens and cows, baking bread and always had a large garden.  They had many good friends and neighbours on the farm. 

After retiring from farming, she remained on the farm where she enjoyed time in her garden and spending time with her dog.  She loved the outdoors and enjoyed going for daily walks. She also enjoyed having family and friends over to the farmhouse for meals and a nice evening of playing cards.  She enjoyed playing bingo, listening to the news and music, attending get togethers, attending spiritual services, and visiting with her family and friends.

Helen moved to Morley House in 2011. She was predeceased by her parents, all of her siblings and her husband Roy on February 11, 1983.  Helen is survived by her three children, Sharon and Walter of Winnipeg and Bernice of Vancouver as well as her sister-in-law Phyllis in Brandon.

We would like to especially thank all the Morley House staff who provided excellent care to mom and she always spoke so highly of them all.
