I regarded Helen as a second mother after losing mine and my mother in-law. Many afternoons I spent visiting with her. She was a very special woman, and always enjoyed doing for others.

Deepest sympathy to Dennis and Greg and Sally and Denise and all of Aunt Helen’s family. She was my favorite and she knew it!! So many great memories: you taught me how to tie my shoes and to whistle and took care of me when Mom was in the hospital. Remembering all the family holidays, your lovely farm with your pickle patch and chestnut trees and your famous Swedish dinner rolls and banana bread. Will miss you and knowing you are no longer in this world.

Loving thoughts for you, Steve . . . . . and Ed.

So sorry to learn of Helen’s passing. She was such a delight to be around–always had a positive attitude. When I think of Helen I remember her church windows candy–so yummy. Rest in peace, Helen!
