January 14, 1926June 28, 2020

Helyn Richardson Conway, age 94, passed away peacefully at home in Moody, Alabama on June 28, 2020. Born January 14, 1926, she is survived by her 3 daughters, Melissa Allured, Tanya Lambert (William), and Mandy Stone (Greg); and her 3 grandchildren, Carman Lambert, Kristi Fox (Daryl), and Jenny Taylor (Ande); and sister, Jeanette Held. She is preceded in death by her husband, Patrick Conway; and two brothers, E.W. "Dub" Richardson and Willliam F. "Bill" Richardson.

Helyn’s passion was painting landscapes of the Richardson Farm in Leoma, Tennessee where she was raised by her late parents, Emmett and Docia Richardson. She will be remembered for wildly entertaining stories about her beloved brothers, sister, and cousins, so much so that she wrote a book about life on the farm. She loved to read, enjoyed her beautiful backyard garden, and adored her sweet dog, Sammo.

Forever in our hearts, a private family celebration of life service will be held.

My favorite memories of Helyn were of the painting excursions the "Palettes" made from time to time several years ago. It was a special time with special friends who share a unique kinship even today. She will forever remain one of my favorite people of all times. I loved her dearly and will always hear her calling me "friend Betsy".
