Aunt Helen was quite a lady! On her road through life, she hit lots of bumps, some minor and some very major. She handled it all with her indomitable spirit, her sense of duty, and her abiding faith. Hard work, an open mind, a sense of humor, and a deep love of family, friends, and God were part of her strength.
She will long be remembered, loved, and missed. Rest in peace, Aunt Helen.

Reading the obituary, Aunt Helen lived a long fulfilling life. That is all we can ask and hope god will give us. We will miss her sincere smile ! However, Tim says he remembers her sincere scowl as a kid 😂 and he was always on his best behavior around her.
With all our love,
