Helen was an amazing woman and whenever I needed to call her regarding the American Legion Auxiliary, she always gave me great advice and encouragement. She will be dearly missed.

Lots of great childhood memories with Aunt Helen and Uncle Clay and all the kids. My Dad loved visiting and we seemed to be there a lot. Helen always had a big smile on! She always treated us well. It seems like the older we get the faster time moves and it doesn’t wait for any of us. I look forward to seeing Helen’s smile again one day on the other side! Rest in peace Aunt Helen.
