Helen Pelton: Lawyer, Rotary Member
Posted By Webmaster (Mongeon)
We were deeply saddened in 2019 to learn of the loss of Helen Pelton, one of the founders of our Rotary Club, Tonic: Hamilton Rotary After Five.
Her compassion, warmth and genuine grace were always at the forefront of her interactions both personally and professionally. She was a distinguished, respected lawyer, a lady in every sense everyone could look up to. Her elegant, and at the same time, strong presence was a tangible thing that left an impression upon you. Having met her, you would never forget her. Helen wrote her own detailed obituary which touched our hearts as we read her life story. She took care of that last detail before passing away. Her own words, her own thoughts…the master of her own story. Her inner grace and unwavering strength were conveyed through her final, written words: “I have enjoyed a great life. I will die peacefully with no regrets.” She is missed but her legacy of service continues in our club with the maintenance of the Helen Pelton Fund which supports the work of our club.
