During this time she met the love of her life, Edward (Alex) McLay. They lived in many places, from Waweig, NB to British Columbia, finally settling in Medway, Maine. During her Medway years she worked as a cook for many local businesses.
Helen's hobbies were quilting, sewing, knitting, crafts, pickles, gardening, berry picking, and true to the Kinney women's spirit, the love of hunting and fishing. She loved poetry (sometimes a little off color), and had a great memory for recital of poetry. Helen enjoyed listening to old hymns and would always sing along. Even at the age of ninety-seven, Helen would still be up on her feet to tap those toes for the right song.
At one point Helen went to bingo in St. Andrews, with her younger sister, Hilda, and she was "hooked." She loved bingo. After that visit she attended bingo five nights a week. The bingo workers looked forward to the cookies she brought them and she loved to holler "B-I-N-G-O." These workers loved her so much they celebrated her birthday every year, enjoying cake with all the fixings.
With declining health in 2010 she could no longer live alone and moved back to St. Stephen to be closer to family and friends. She had a few good years in special care homes before being admitted to Charlotte County Hospital.
Her family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Floor One and Floor Two at the hospital for the love and care Helen received during her hospital stay.
