Helen and Steven were both living in Valley River at the time of their marriage, per Marriage document received from MB Vital Statistics.Helen's parents are listed as Theodore Trush and Eudokia Mechalski.
Olena (Helen) per 1901 census record was a sister to Martha (Trusz) Skolney:

My Trusz connections commence with Eudokia (Dora) Trusz (1832-1902 Zalavye, Trembowla, Austria) who was the second wife to Hryhorij (Harry/Gregorius) Perchaluk. Her maiden name may have been Martsyniv. It is mentioned in Roman-Catholic Registers that 25.10.1902 Yevdokiya (Eudokia) Perkhalyuk,a widow after Hryhoriy, from Martsyniv family, died at the age of 79. It is most likely that Yevdokiya Martsyniv had first married an unknown Trusz, and was the second wife of Hryhoriy Perkhalyuk (Perchaluk).
My Trusz family connections go further with the marriage of Annie Skolney (1902-1928), daughter of Semko Skolney and Martha Trusz.Annie was the first wife of my great-uncle Nicholas Kucher (Kuczer/Kutcher) who lived near Dauphin, MB.
Any further information would be greatly appreciated.
