Helen Jane Kromm (née Pollock) of Calgary, AB passed away on Sunday December 25, 2022 at the age of 95.
Helen was born on December 8, 1927 in Saskatoon, SK. She has achieved a lot in her life and was particularly proud of her involvement in community sports, her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Helen was also an active member in the community, serving in many different capacities.
Helen enjoyed watching TV and cheering on The Calgary Flames, where she and her husband Ron were the original season ticket holders at the old corral. She loved sports, all Calgary and nothing Edmonton.
Helen served as athletic director and president of the South Calgary Community Association and was director of Glenlake Hockey. Helen was instrumental in introducing softball and hockey to girls in the community.
Helen’s most memorable vacation was when she traveled back to the farm in Saskatchewan that summer. Helen was a devoted wife and homemaker and an active member of the community. She will be remembered most for her passionate spirit.
Helen is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Burke Kromm (Trudy); two daughters and two sons-in-law, Sherry Jane Kinoshita (Bill), Patti Kromm (Bert): five grandchildren, Douglas, Kimberly, Ryan, Jane and Mark; five great-grandchildren, Chase, Avery, Ella, Bennett, and Luke; step-grandchildren, Jeff and Greg. As well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Helen was predeceased by her husband Ronald Kromm, brothers Murray and Lawrence; and sisters, Olive Bowes (Mervin) and Blanche Nichols (Clarence).
The family would also like to recognize all of the girls who have competed in sports and been coached by Helen Kromm. She has always held a special place in her heart for her dedication, class and competitive spirit. Thank you all.
If friends so wish, memorials can be addressed directly to the Calgary Humane Society or the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Condolences, memories and photos can also be shared and viewed there.
