I remember the first time I met Helena at the Manor, she gave me her full name, Helena Eurydice, and I was impressed. I knew from that moment on that Helena was a true lady. Her room always had cards or flowers from nieces and nephews and on occasion, I would see Nancy on our weekly Saturday visits. My condolences to her family.

To Shelia, BJ and Bev, our thoughts are with you at this sad time.
When I think of Aunt Helen, the first thing that pops into my mind is her cooking, and her back yard, with a variety of berry bushes, gardens and apple trees that brought the deer from all around. Now she is with her sisters, so we will all meet again one day. Love you, and rest in peace. xo
