I met Helen and Norman at Tammy Hensley’s beauty shop. She was always so sweet and soft spoken. I wish that I could have known her better. Norman was always so attentive to her. Norman and family, you have my prayers to get through this sad time.

Biography

Helen M. Myers was known as many things to many people. She was a loved one, a friend, and someone special. To family and friends who knew her best, Helen will be remembered as a very exceptional person.

      Helen was born on August 25, 1943 at home in Greeneville, Tennessee. She was the daughter of David and Emma Dean Shelton. Helen grew up in Cedar Creek.

      Helen was raised with five siblings. They were Shelby, Frank, Bob, Lisa, and Mark. Helen was usually involved in all sorts of activities with her siblings. She and her siblings experienced rivalries typical of a growing family, but they shared many life experiences over the years.

      As a young girl, Helen had a number of interests. Like most children, she enjoyed playing and making up games. She was curious about the world around her and was often eager to explore it. Helen was an active child who took part in basketball. She worked on the farm doing tobacco, gardening, canning, and milking cows. In her spare time she liked bowling, sewing, and making her own clothes. Helen's memorable achievements included winning running awards at field day. However, to Helen, the most fun to be had was simply playing and spending time with her friends.

      A typical teenager, Helen had a fairly happy high school experience, making that critical transition from adolescence to adulthood. She graduated from St. James High School in 1961. She enjoyed some classes more than others, having favorite subjects and teachers. Her favorite class in high school was Algebra. The teacher she enjoyed learning from the most was Mr. Wallin. She received the All County Basketball Award.

      Helen enjoyed her post-high school years, which may have been a challenge with all of the academics, responsibilities, and the sudden freedom that accompanied them, but Helen was able to manage the balancing act. She earned her undergraduate repairman certificate from Walters State Community College.

      Always considered a “good” friend to those she knew, Helen enjoyed a broad group of acquaintances and several very close friends during her lifetime. While growing up, some of her best friends were Mary Nell Gregg and Carolyn Renner. Later in life, she became friends with Lucille Wills.

      On July 25, 1962 Helen exchanged wedding vows with Norman Kyle Myers at Broyles Chapel Church of God of Greene County, Tennessee. Empathic and loyal, Helen was committed to making her new family happy.

      Helen worked hard to be a good mother to her children and she did her best to fulfill their needs. Helen was blessed with two children, two sons, Chris and Steve. Another blessing for Helen was the gift of six grandchildren, Adam, Katie, Christen, Alyssa, Steven, and Kaylee, and two great grandchildren, Hadlee and Kyrie.

      Fortunately, Helen enjoyed what she did for a living. Showing a strong work ethic, Helen worked diligently and did her best to succeed in her career. Her primary occupation was as a television repairman. She was employed for 45 years. Helen always sought to be a team player, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done.

      Helen enjoyed her leisure time by taking part in various hobbies. Her favorite pursuits were playing games with her grandchildren and spending time with her family. She was content to enjoy her favorite pastimes alone but was also willing to share her interests with others.

      Helen found pleasure in sports. In high school, Helen played the guard position in basketball. Helen was also something of a sports fan and enjoyed following her favorite events whenever she had the chance to do so. Tops on her list was basketball.

      Helen’s faith was important to her. She was a member of Broyles Chapel and Cedar Creek Church of God. During that time, she was the children's Sunday school teacher.

      Helen enjoyed traveling and time away on vacations. It was a chance for her to renew and relax, to visit new places and experience new things. Favorite vacations included going to the beach with family.

      When Helen’s retirement finally arrived in 2004 from Philips Electronics Company, she was well prepared. Even in retirement, Helen continued to stay in touch with her old friends while making plenty of new acquaintances. Helen was active in her new community and felt fulfilled with the opportunities retirement offered her.

      Helen passed away on October 11, 2020 at Bristol Hospice House, surrounded by family. Helen fought a brave battle against Parkinson's disease. She is survived by her husband, Norman; sons and daughters-in-law: Chris and Karen Myers and Steve and Nicole Myers; grandchildren; and great grandchildren. Services were held at Kiser-Rose Hill Funeral Home. Helen was laid to rest in GreeneLawn Memory Gardens in Greeneville, Tennessee.

      Simply stated, Helen was a good and kind person, an individual who will for all time be remembered by her family and friends as being a caring and giving person, someone who was a vital part of their lives. Helen leaves behind her a legacy of life-long friendships and many cherished memories. Everyone whose life she touched will always remember Helen M. Myers.
