Aunt Helen will always be in my memory . I remember visiting her when I was a little girl the house always smelled amazing. She always had something wonderful baking and some project for the girls on her sewing machine. what I am most grateful for was her devotion to my mom . Though she was younger she has always been protective of her . I know she's in a better place now but know she will live on in my heart. Love Brenda

We are very sorry to hear about Helen's passing. Please take care. Sharon and Jody Riddle
So many of my happy childhood memories are with Aunt Helen! Swinging on the rope swing, playing with Tammy or walking to the store at the end of the road for candy. Aunt Helen knew how to make a day more fun. The memory I hold closest to my heart is something she told me when I was going through a really tough time. She stepped way outside of her comfort zone for me! She will be missed. Always in my memories Kathy (Tinkham) McCully
