Helen Partridge, age 97, of Williamston, MI, died March 4, 2018, peacefully in her home.

A lifelong Williamston resident, Helen was a skilled crafter who lovingly created quilts, blankets, afghans, booties, and even pen holders for everyone she met. Helen enjoyed gardening and never passed up a coupon or sale at the grocery store, and she generously clipped coupons for any product or brand desired, by anyone she knew. She was active at her church for 96 years: faithful in her attendance, generous with her help in the kitchen, and gentle in her teaching of Sunday School classes.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Gale; daughter, Phyllis; and sons-in-law, Paul and Clyde. Surviving are her children, Dorothy, James (Beth), John (Marilyn), Elaine (Dick), Gary (Bob), 30 grandchildren, 62 great-grandchildren, and 24 great-great-grandchildren.

Funeral Services will be held on Friday, March 9, 2018 at 2pm at Crossroads United Methodist Church, 5491 Zimmer Rd., Williamston. Visitation will be held on Thursday, March 8, 2018 from 4pm until 7pm at Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes, Williamston Chapel, 205 E. Middle St., Williamston.

My memories of Helen Partridge began some 50+ years ago, when I met John at college--then I visited the home of his family and I was treated by Helen like she was a second Mom to me---her love , friendliness and caring was so welcoming to me! She was one of the finest Christian examples I had in my earlier years--As I became better acquainted with the family they were great and always friendly.

Helen laughed when John, Jim and myself poured into the Corvair for our trip to the beaches of Florida.

I send my deepest sympathy to all of the Partridge family with the loss of lovely Helen Partridge. One of my memories is attending church with her in her favorite country church.

With love and friendship in DA , UP, eh!
