Helen was a wonderful Mom and grandmother. She enjoyed traveling and going for rides in the automobile (as she referred to a car), to visit loved ones and just to enjoy the scenery. Though she was not active in many things outside of the home, she was always available and willing to help others in need. She was a very special person and will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew and loved her. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands now rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the BEST!
