Helen Bernice Newton Calvert

Helen was raised in the foothills of the Arkansas Ozarks with two older sisters and one brother.

Helen had her sights on the big city, and Big D fit the bill. She met and married the love of her life, Grady, at Calvary Baptist Church of Oak Cliff in 1947.

In the ‘60s, Helen began working as a part-time bookkeeper, then on to a full-time clerk at the Dallas County District Attorney’s office. In the ‘70s she started a career in banking at the American Banking Association, and retired as a bank examiner for the Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas.

Helen was a life-long learner and participated in continuing education throughout her life. One of her proudest accomplishments was her earning a real estate broker’s license in the ‘80s.

She was preceded in death by Grady and their daughter, Brenda Angell.

She is survived by their children Gwen Kimrey, Bert Calvert, and Curt Calvert, 11 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.

Proverbs 31: 24-29

She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies belts to the tradesmen.

Strength and dignity are her clothing, And she smiles at the future.

She opens her mouth in wisdom, And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

She looks well to the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her saying:

“Many daughters have done nobly, But you excel them all.”
