It is with very heavy hearts that the City of White Rock acknowledges the passing of Councillor Helen Fathers yesterday following a lengthy illness.

A White Rock resident for more than 30 years, Councillor Fathers was a passionate community advocate and a true pillar of our community. She served as operations manager for the White Rock Farmers' Market, Director of the B.C. Association of Farmers' Markets, and was a four (4) term White Rock City Councillor with her election to Council in November 2008, which she served up until the time of her passing. 

“The loss of Helen Fathers is a loss to the entire White Rock community,” said Mayor Darryl Walker. “Helen had vision and was committed to serving our community. She was also collaborative and a truly kind and caring person. White Rock City Council has lost a wonderful asset. She will be incredibly missed.”

Originally from Nottingham, England, Councillor Fathers is survived by her husband Rob, daughter Ellie, and mother Margaret in White Rock, and her father Bernard and brother Rod in England.
