Helen C. "Chicken" Cubbage
January 16, 2018
I spent a lot of time over the years with her here at Avante, laughing, walking, talking and just trying to keep her out of trouble. She was feisty and always would tell you how it is good or bad. I will miss my visits with her as she meant a lot to me and touched my heart like no one has before in the 30 years of working in long term care. "Speedy" as I have called her for years is truly the reason that continues to make me realize I am doing what I was meant to do. She was one of a kind and touched everyone that she came in contact with.
