Helen Primi

Helen Primi, fiercely proud mother of Kassandra (1997), Alexandra (2002) and Anthony (2004), amazing wife of Joseph (April 9, 1994), Early Childhood Educator and cherished friend to more people than I could possibly name.

Born Helen Kousipetkou on November 18, 1970 in Toronto. Oldest child of Michael and Efrossini Kousipetkou. Older sister to Betty and Tommy.

As a child she was full of energy and very loving. Her parents owned restaurants all her life and she took care of herself and her siblings when her parents were working. These years being a caregiver helped her to develop a passion for children and she chose a life working with children to help care for and educate the next generations. Her caring and giving nature continued when she was married and started a family. She had a childlike fascination with Disney, especially Mickey Mouse and had a large assortment of clothing and collectibles. Helen loved Easter, Halloween and July 1st but her passion was Christmas and she would buy great presents and bake a huge amount of cookies for all her friends and family every year. Holidays just won’t be the same without her.

What is the best measure of a life well lived?

Helen always felt that the best measure of a life well lived was time spent with family and friends, sometimes doing absolutely nothing, the people we have met and the lives we have been a part of and changed during our lives. As an Early Childhood Educator at Sunny Faces Daycare for 33 years, Helen affected the lives of hundreds and hundreds of children and their families. As a friend she was always there to lend a hand or an ear. As a wife she was understanding and forgiving. As a mother she was Wonder Woman, making sure her children were cared for and nurtured and had great experiences, even if she had to do it alone.

Helen, there is a hole in the hearts of all of us who knew and loved you. We must remember and cherish the times we spent together.

We love you.
