Her passing will leave another hole in my heart. She stepped in and became a surrogate parent to me, since the death of my mother,
Christine, and then the passing of my father, her older brother, Dick Young. With grace and love she lived her life. In death, she leaves behind an ever growing legacy of sons, daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I hope they all find comfort today and in all of the days ahead. I hope that they'll always live with her teachings and goodness in their hearts.

It was my privilege to have been one of Mary Helen’s care givers at Rose Court. She trusted me, and she would share questions of faith and her need to be consoled. I hope I met her needs to to best of my capabilities. May she Rest In Peace in the Kingdom of God.

Condolences to all her immediate family and those who loved and were loved by Mary Helen. Know that the promise of Salvation she knew in her heart, she also knew was available to all.
