SMITH, Helen (nee Matthews) - Peacefully, with family by her side on March 3 in her 89th year. Beloved wife for 66 years to the late Bill Smith (2018). Loving mother of Matthew and his wife Louise of Port Dover, Reid and his wife Kim of Chatham and Liz of Norwich. Proud grandmother of Kurt, Nick, Craig (Jordan), Aaron, Kelly and Alexis. Adoring great-grandmother (G-G) of Brynlee, Rosemary, Warner and Crew. A proud supporter of the community and known for seeing through any task she started, Helen was always willing to help where she could. She started the swimming lessons at the Otterville pool, was a long-time member of the curling club and served for many years on Township council, the last three as Oxford County’s first (and to date only) female Warden. Always ready with a joke, her quick wit will be missed by all who knew her.
