Helen Marie Yasinski was born on November 3, 1927 in the Buchanan district of Saskatchewan; a daughter of Stanley and Anna (nee Derkach) Brezinski. She was raised on the farm and attended the Wolna School. On October 28, 1945 she was united in marriage to Mike Yasinski. During her lifetime in the Buchanan district Mike and Helen were farmers as well as restaurant, and grocery store owners. In 1960 they purchased a home in Buchanan. Helen became employed at the Buchanan CO-OP for a number of years. In 2002 the couple relocated to Yorkton, making their home at the Fairview Arms Seniors Living units. Mike passed away in 2005. Following that time Helen was able to maintain her independence until June of 2018, when she became a resident of the Saltcoats Lakeside Manor Care Home, where she resided until her passing in the early hours of Monday, April 6th 2020 with her daughter Vivian at her side. She was 92 years of age. Helen will be remembered for her bountiful gardens; the delicious raspberry jam from her own raspberry patch; her wonderful and creative cooking and baking; and of course, the wonderful cabbage rolls and perogies, no one left her home hungry. She was a master quilt maker and loved to crochet in her spare time, and how she loved a good game of cards, ready to challenge anyone. Mom, grandma, great grandma, you will be missed, may you rest in peace!

She leaves to cherish her memory her three children: Lorne (Eileen) of Saltcoats; Wayne of Hyas; Vivian Buchinski of Saltcoats. Grandchildren and great grandchildren: Derek Yasinski (Rona) and their children Aela, KC and Ron; Cassandra Bradford (Mason) and their children Kamden and Nash; Justin Yasinski; Candice Herman (Jon) and their children Addison and Brielle; Tyler Buchinski (Adele) and their children Ethan, Addison and Sophie; Kirby Buchinski (Nicole); Shayne Yasinski (Carmen). Also, her brothers: Edward M. Brezinski, Bernard Brezinski (Sylvia), and Edmund Brezinski (Isabelle). Numerous nieces, nephews, and her many other relatives and friends.

Sincerest sympathy to the Yasinski family. We have fond memories of Helen. She was very active in our community and especially our church. Ron especially remembers the close friendship they had with his mom and dad. They now will be able to have some card games in Heaven. May they all rest in peace!!
