Helen loved gardening, fishing, puzzles and just having a good time. She enjoyed the fulfilling work she did at Good Samaritan Nursing Home, but what she loved the most was being with her family and taking trips. At 65 she went horseback riding in the mountains of Arizona, at age 80 she took her dream trip to Hawaii and at age 85 she went diamond hunting in Arkansas. She liked to sit around a bonfire with her family and tell stories about her trips. Once a month, she would get together with her Daughters and Granddaughters for dinner and she would always make the dessert!
She will be greatly missed, as she was the Wonder Woman of her family. We will never forget the joy she brought into all of our lives.
A Celebration of Life event is being planned for April.
Contributions in Helen's memory can be made to the donor's choice of charity.
