It is with great sadness that we, the family of Helen Torraville, announce the death of our loving Mother, Mother-in-law and Grandmother. However, it is with grateful hearts that we celebrate her joyful and rewarding life of almost 86 years.
Helen was born to Charles and Olive Nurse of Champney’s East, NL along with her predeceased sibling’s, Marjorie, Joseph, Delbert and William. She moved to Gander Bay as a teacher where she met and married the love of her life, Rosswell Torraville. Together they raised their four children until Ross’s death in 1995.
Helen chose to continue enjoying life to the best of her ability with her family and friends and always had a smile for everyone.
Left to mourn are son Geoffrey (Norma), Daughter Donna (Richard), Son John (Anne), Son Jason (Rhonda) and her grandchildren whom she loved so dearly, Jennifer(Jonathan), Jacob, Sam, Lisa(Dean) and Randy(Andrea) along with her great-children Ben, Zoe, Mason, Kaden and Riley as well as a very large group of caring extended family and faithful lifetime friends.
