My mother Margaret Booth Patten was a classmate of Helen at D.A. She introduced me to Helen several times over the years, and Helen was a warm, friendly person. I know those D.A. classmates were a wonderful group, and many are having a reunion with Helen in heaven.

Helen made every room she went into light up. There wasn’t a time you could be glum around Helen without her cheering you up! She’ll be loved and missed dearly.

Mrs. Wilson was a crafted seamstress and my memories of her are of the many adorable puffed sleeved mini dresses she made for Darlene and some for me. We wore them to the CYO dances, always in style. She also made the dresses for our Spanish class dance. A generous and kind lady, very classy. God bless her and her two caring daughters, Darlene and Patsy.

I can see Mrs. Wilson sitting in her dining room chair in front of the hutch. She was a good woman who the kind of mom I wished I had. She is with your father now and he has waited a long time for her.
Take care of yourself and I will keep your family in my prayers.
