Posted Condolences:


  1. Karen,

    So sorry for the loss of your Mother. Prayers are with you and your family.

  2. What a beautiful picture of Grandma Hellen!

    We so enjoyed having her, along with all of you, not just for holidays and birthdays but also the cookie decorating…. Her little quips here and there…we will never forget the cookie decorating!

    Hellen was so good to check on her grandkids more than daily… especially if someone wasn’t feeling well.

    We will never eat ham without thinking of Hellen…she always brought the ham and her special chocolate cake with the fudge like frosting!

    Lots of memories to smile about even though the heart will miss her presence!

    God bless you all at this most difficult time.

  3. Thoughts and prayers Karen

  4. Karen and family,

    So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Our thoughts are with you. She was a great lady and good support for your family.

  7. Oh the memories I have of this cherished loved one are so many! We were forever together on Saturday nights and shared so many good times together. To say she had a dry sense of humor is the best .. she was so to the point in her thoughts and you never knew what she was going to say next and she never cared who heard what she had to say always reminding you with”well that is true”! That quirky,devilish smile she had was the best. She treasured her family and always talked about the grand children and the activities they were attending. She was very proud of all of you! I will forever miss our visits.

  8. So sorry for your loss

  9. I got to know Helen through her many years at 4th Corporation. Such a nice lady! She always brought her smile to work. My thoughts are with you and your family, Karen.
