Private Family Service
On December 29, 2021, Helen Cameron passed peacefully in Toronto at age 91. Among the grieving are her two sons, Michael and Mark Swartz, the grandchildren she loved with all her heart, Stacia and Jonah Swartz, her caring brother Ralph Goodman and his wife Jan, close and always there for her niece Shelly Shalmoni, plus all the cousins, extended family, and friends.
Helen had been a volunteer for helpful causes throughout her life. Cancer fund raising, Hadassah bazaars. Even in the nursing home she knit hats and scarves for the needy. During her life she had been a devoted stay at home mother, then worked administratively for Northwestern Hospital and other employers. She had been married first to Sydney Herman Swartz, in Toronto, followed by Eric Cameron, in Arlington, Virginia.
Bubby Helen, a balabusta in the truest sense, will be sorely missed for her wonderful traditional cooking, her crossword wizardry, socializing and love of family.
