ON THE 16th January, a commemorative morning tea for Mrs Helen Horton was held at the RSL Club in Deloraine.

Mrs Helen Clayton thanked the 80 people in attendance for coming along to help celebrate the life of the well-respected member of the Deloraine community.

Helen and her husband, Don, were remembered for holding the first Cancer Council Biggest Morning Tea at their home in Deloraine and Helen continued to coordinate the event for the next twenty years.

As well as being a member of the Deloraine Hospital Auxiliary and Meals on Wheels for a number of years, she was also a fundraiser for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Four of Helen’s grandchildren reminisced about their time spent with Helen and Don while growing up. She was a great cook, they said.

Mrs Helen Horton passed away on the 3rd January 2019 after a long illness.
