Helen Blair Rooney

Helen Blair Rooney – 89, passed away on May 28, 2024 in the Grey Nuns Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta.

Born in Reserve Mines, Cape Breton, Helen was the daughter of the late Matthew "Wilson" and Margaret (Rennie) MacIntyre. She moved to Alberta in 2017 to be closer to her family. She enjoyed family get togethers where she was the life of the party. We will miss her wicked sense of humour, infectious laugh and Cape Breton sayings. She was kind, generous and loyal.
