Helen was an avid reader, loved to dance, and enjoyed spending time outdoors tending her flower and vegetable gardens. She was also a talented home cook who loved to entertain for her family and friends. She was a wonderful mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great grandmother who liked to open her home to those she loved, as well as go for outings around her native Sus County.
