    My favorite memory of her is when she would visit her sister (Ann) who was my Mother. It was always a guessing game as to what color and style her hair would be. She always loved to hear about our Cocker Spaniel – “Buffi”—-she adored dogs !! She will be dearly missed !

    Please accept my sympathy in the painful loss of your dear Helen. You the loving Family & Friends will hopefully be comforted by the following Bible Verses: Rev21:4-5 “AND HE WILL WIPE OUT EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES AND DEATH WILL BE NO MORE,THE FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY”

    Helen was a feisty, independent woman. I met her at BTC where she visited regularly until recent years. She was a generous friend of the culinary arts program. She even planted an herb garden for them. She was quietly generous with everyone she cared about. It was a privilege to be her friend. I will miss her.
