Helen was an expert at crocheting, knitting, and sewing. She enjoyed bird watching and passed on her love of the public library and shopping at garage sales. She devoted her life to her family, being a homemaker and especially loved her cats. Helen never wanted to be the center of attention, so her services will be private for immediate family members only. Friends wishing to honor her memory are invited to donate in her name to their local animal shelter.
