Helene (Ivy) (Marjory) Soo, 87, of New Milford, died Jan. 1, 2011, at The Kent.

Mrs. Soo was born Aug. 9, 1923, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

At the age of 3 she moved to Pennsylvania to live with her grandmother, Sara.

She worked for 25 years as a veterinary assistant for Dr. Roger Grossman in Chappaqua, N.Y.

Her love was not only shown to her family and friends but also to those in need through organizations such as the Salvation Army and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Mrs. Soo loved to read and spend time with her children and grandchildren.

She is survived by her children, Jennifer, Linda, Pam and Jonathan; as well as four grandchildren, Kelly, Ashley, Jon Jr. and Vanessa.

Services will be held in conjunction with the scattering of her ashes at sea, a place she always enjoyed.

The Colonial Funeral Home of New Milford is in charge of arrangements.
