I worked with Helen at Lawson's / Dairy Mart. I remember a time that her & Lela Florence were working together & I had stopped in to visit. This was before she had her hearing aid & sometimes she had trouble hearing the customers . This guy came in & asked her for a pack of Kool Kings . She said "cookies ? The cookies are over there." The guy said " No Kool Kings . Helen said "Sir , The cookies are over there " ! We all laughed until we had tears in our eyes ! She was a great lady ! Prayers for her family

I remember most the years she was attempting to teach me to cook and how most of our efforts ended in disaster and laughter. Pizza landed in the pool, taffy pulling nearly covered her kitchen, and corn on the cob was a late night trip to a sweet corn field. There are hundreds of wonderful memories we shared over our 50 plus years of friendship. She will be greatly missed. My prayers are with the family.
