Vale Helen McDiarmid

WELL-KNOWN and well-loved New Norfolk businesswoman Helen McDiarmid lost her battle with breast cancer last week. Helen and husband Mark arrived in the Derwent Valley a number of years ago, settling in the historic Stanton homestead at Magra. In 2005 the couple opened Stanton as a bed and breakfast. Helen soon took an interest in community affairs and the council in particular.

It is now several years since Helen and Mark took over Passions coffee shop in High St, New Norfolk, earning a much deserved reputation for their warmth and hospitality. Mark has posted a notice on the shop window, advising of Helen’s passing last Wednesday. He invites all friends to attend the funeral at St Paul’s Uniting Church this week.

UPDATE: Helen’s funeral will take place on Wednesday, January 6, at 11am.
