Gibsons Mayor Wayne Rowe says the town will honour the “Cart Lady”.
Helen Alp died March 1st, at the age of 82.
She and her husband ran a successful janitorial business for years, and after his death she took to walking the town with her trademark cart, collecting recyclables and doing her part to keep the streets clean.
Rowe says before Alp’s death the Town was working to put up a plaque, for her and her husband, at a spot where she used to sit and feed the ducks .
Alp’s funeral is 1pm Friday at the Devlin Funeral Home, with a reception to follow at Leo’s Tapas and Grill.
