WOLFE, Helen Wolfe   -  Smashed stereotypes as an educator, writer, and world traveller in her wheelchair, died at home on August 17th, secure in the love of her sister Margie, family and dear friends.

Daughter of Holocaust survivors Josef and Toby Wolfe, Helen was born on July 16, 1953 with spina bifida.

She grew up in a time when people with disabilities were segregated, and of whom little was expected. From childhood, she had a fierce determination to live life to the fullest.

Helen upended social norms and surmounted obstacles which stood in her way. 

Beloved by her adult immigrant students and admired by colleagues, cousins and friends, Helen was a lifelong human rights advocate and feminist. She was an avid theatre goer and a passionate member of her choir group, the Choralairs.

She lived on her own terms. And she died knowing that she had had an amazing life. 

Funeral arrangements with Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel, Toronto.  Shiva will be held at Helen's apartment at 3000 Bathurst Street #901, Toronto. 

Memorial donations may be made to the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care 416-586-4800, March of the Living 416-631-5685, or the Auberge Shalom Women's Shelter in Montreal 514-485-4783.
