Helen was a "foodie" always willing to exchange a recipe or two. She loved a great party and used her own entertainment talents to encourage others to perform both with her and for her in various community events. She was an artist who gave of her gifts in thoughtful words, songs and in her art to the delight of the recipients.
Helen's legacy is her unconditional love for her family and her ability to adapt to whatever life presented her. She took each opportunity  to look for the best in the people she met and the situations that she experienced.  The world is a better place having had this special lady as part of our lives for such a short period of time.
