Obituary of Helen Morlidge
It is with heartfelt sadness, but relief, that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Helen Elizabeth Morlidge on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, with family at her side.
Helen was born on February 20, 1930 in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan and grew up on the family farm near Greenstreet, Saskatchewan which is north east of Lloydminster. She attended Albion School for her elementary years and attended high school in Lloydminster, where she met her husband George Ronald Morlidge. They had two children, Donald George and Rosemary Ruth.
Helen attended Normal School in Saskatoon after high school. She taught school at Rex for one year before she was married. While her children were young, she often worked as a substitute teacher in both the public and separate school systems. In the late 1960s, she decided it was time to go back to university and obtain her teaching degree, so she began by doing correspondence courses at home. She then went to summer school for a couple summers, and then took a sabbatical and went to university where she completed her degree. She taught full time for over twenty-five years for the Lloydminster Separate School board. She mostly taught grade four, as that was her favorite.
Helen is survived by: son, George Morlidge Jr.; daughter, Rosemary (Gordon) Cobb; five grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Helen is predeceased by: her husband, George Morlidge Sr.; granddaughter-in-law, Rebecca Morlidge; parents, James and Doris Patmore; sister, Rosalie Cloppert; and brother, Robert Patmore.
