Always enjoyed talking with Helen at the 4:30 Saturday mass at St. Mary of the Knobs. Really missed seeing her at church. We did not know she had moved; the church was never notified. We would have kept in contact with her had we known. Love, prayers and sympathy to all the family from Hospitality In Service Ministry (HIS MINISTRY) at St. Mary of the Knobs.

I have a lot of wonderful memories with Helen and her family. I remember her fried chicken it was delicious and just about anything else she cooked was too. Helen always told you how it was straight up held nothing back which I adored about her, along with her laugh and she pretty much always had a smile on her face. It just saddens my heart that she has passed but we all know she is at peace and in a better place no more pain and hurt. We will be with her again some day and the rest of our loved ones. My deepest sympathy to her family love you all.

Helen was like my second mom for many years. Going to camp at spring mill and hanging at their house was a big part of my childhood. She always treated me like one of her own. Heaven gained a good angel.

Helen , you always knew just how special your son was to me but I failed to let you know how special you are . You and your family left imprints on my heart that I will carry with me always . You were a class act here on earth and no doubt taking that with you in eternity. Sleep with angels now and talk Joes ear off . I love you lady and I will love your son forever . Until next time .
