Helen was such a special lady and super friend. She and I shared rides back and forth to Greencastle when we were both getting our masters degrees. I so much enjoyed every moment with her. I wish that I could have attended the service but did not learn of this in time.
I send my warmest sympathy to her sons and families. Helen
was a genuine friend.

Helen was a wonderful teacher and mentor. My student teaching experience was completed under her supervision in 1973. We kept in contact for a few years after graduation. She was a warm & caring person, touching so many lives. RIP
