It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Helen Effie Hatt of Milton. Helen peacefully passed away on 21 June 2020 at the Queens General Hospital in Liverpool.
Helen was born in Milton as the eldest and the only daughter of the late Winslow and Jenny (Hatt) Hatt of Milton and was raised in a family with four brothers.
Married on the 23 October 1953, she became the wife and devoted partner of Gerald E Hatt. It was because of their love and devotion that they were able to enjoy a relationship of 67 years and raise a family of six children. Helen’s greatest passion in her life was her family. It was through her loving and nurturing ways that she became the sage mentor and role model to all her children. Over the years she developed a strong relationship to both God and her religion. She was an active member and a Sunday school teacher of the Pilgrim United Church located in Brooklyn, Queens County. Also, she was a devoted member of the Order of Eastern Star where she was able to attain the position of Worthy Past Matron of Arbutus Chapter, #30, OES, Milton, NS. Some of Helen’s hobbies were her craft work, puzzles, and going for walks. She was also a caring and devoted friend to many, and one of her great pleasures in life was getting together with friends to play Rimouli. Helen was also a clerk working in Seldon’s Drug Store for many years.
Helen is survived by her beloved husband Gerald and her six children: Janice (Doug) Baker, and Daniel (Patti), Stephen (Zona), Michael (Donna), Gregory, Jeffery (Andrea) Hatt. She leaves behind her 11 grandchildren: Christina, Derrick, Melissa, Tracie, Benjamin, Jenilyn, Jonathan, Stephen, Nicholas, Christopher, and Samuel. She also leaves behind 13 great grandchildren and 2 great, great grandchildren. She is also survived by brothers, Allan (Marnie) and Gary (Agnus) as well her sisters-in-law Pauline and Rita.
Besides her parents, Helen was predeceased by her infant granddaughter Jacqueline Baker and brothers Robert and David.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool, NS. No flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the Nova Scotia Heart and Stroke Foundation or to the Children’s Wish Foundation. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com.
Helen’s family wishes to give thanks to both Dr. Gary Ernst and Dr. Ryan Burrill, and to the nursing staff at Queens General Hospital for the exemplary care provided to her.

Gerry and Family, how deeply sorry we are to learn of Helen’s passing. Your loss leaves you to mourn this piller of a close and loving family.

She will be greatly missed by all who shared life’s path with her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you walk through the shadow of this deep valley. You are not alone.

John and Nancy

Condolence from Kim Masland, MLA on June 24th, 2020 8:52 am

To Helen’s family,

I am so very sad to learn about Helen’s passing. She was such a lovely lady who was so very proud of her family. The last time I saw her was when I knocked on her door during the campaign and she shared stories with me about her grandchildren. I can still hear her laugh when I told her that my daughter, Kelsey had great memories of visiting with her and Gerald and how competitive she was in Rimouli.

I know you all have such cherished shared moments as she filled your lives with her nurturing and mentoring. Hold on to those so tightly. It is my hope those memories will comfort your hurting hearts in this time of loss.

My sincere condolences.

Condolence from Ward & Joyce Cunningham on June 24th, 2020 9:10 am

Condolence from Sandra Hatt on June 25th, 2020 7:37 pm

To All of The Hatt Family,

I was saddened to read of Helen’s passing. My sincere and heartfelt condolences to all of you at this sad and difficult time.

I did not know Helen well or see her often, however, I always enjoyed seeing her and having a chat with her whenever I would see her over the years at various functions. I am sure you have many wonderful stories to tell and remembrances of special times shared with her.

You are in my thoughts and prayers during this sad and difficult time, made even more difficult I am sure because of the times we are in with all the restrictions around social distancing and gathering sizes. May you be comforted by God’s Love and that of your family and friends.

With Sympathy and Love,
Sandra Hatt
