Helen Raison Obituary, Death Cause – To each and every one of the people who make up our community: It is with great regret that we must inform you of the demise of EHBA Life Member Helen Raison. Her passing has dealt a severe blow to all of us here at EHBA. During this difficult time, she is being remembered in our thoughts and prayers along with her loved ones and friends.
Mrs. Raison, or Mrs. Raison as we always referred to her, was a wonderful asset to junior basketball over the course of a number of years.
Together with her late husband Brian, who has since died away, she was one of the major people who assisted in getting junior basketball off the ground in the Mount Barker region. Sadly, her husband passed away. In 2010, Mrs. Raison passed away after a long battle with cancer. Helen continued to work in the field of junior development right up to the ripe old age of 75, when she officially retired from the industry. In addition to this, she has extensive experience working as a member of the EHBA Management committee for a number of years, where she played a crucial role in the management team.
Both junior basketball and basketball in general were her strong strengths, and she won championships in both of them. She was a champion in both of them. We would like to take advantage of this occasion to express our gratitude to Mrs. Raison for the significant contributions that she has made to the association over the course of such a significant amount of time. We are keeping the family in our thoughts and prayers as we go through this trying time together. This is an extraordinarily tough time for all of us.
