Helen Horvath

1927 ~ 2019 (age 91)


Helen Horvath of Yorkton and formerly of the Otthon District passed away May 27, 2019 at the age of 91 . 

Helen Mary Nagy was born on July 4th, 1927 on her parents’ farm near Willowbrook.  She was born to Mary and James Nagy.  She received her education in a country school, Oak Hill, and helped on the family farm until she left home to go to BC.  She then returned home to Saskatchewan.  It was after that when she met Joe Horvath in church.  They were married October 20, 1947.  She moved to the family farm in Otthon.  They were blessed with two children, Marie and Robert.

Helen was always a quiet, hard-working person.  She enjoyed gardening, cooking and baking. She also enjoyed going to dances, birthday parties and weddings.   Helen quietly found her role within the family and worked hard to serve the needs of those she loved-whether it was a meal prepared for a special occasion, or acting as sympathetic listener who could hear and not judge.

Helen enjoyed traveling and visited places such as Hungary, Alaska, British Columbia, the Maritimes, Nashville, the Black Hills, Mexico, Cuba and Vegas.  These trips gave her great memories.

Helen spent the last four years at Theodore Care Home where she continued to touch those around her with her good grace and gentle ways. Helen passed away peacefully on May 27, 2019, in the Yorkton Nursing Home. She is predeceased: by  parents, Mary and James Nagy; husband Joe Horvath; in-laws Julius and Mary Horvath; son in- law Harvey Aichele; brother Andrew Nagy; sister Pearl Nagy;  sister in-law Ethel Purves; brother in-law Alex Purves; brother in-law Charlie Steranka.
