Born to Life May 6, 1911

Born to Eternal Life June 18, 2002

HELENS attitude toward people was to accept them as they were. She saw and affirmed the goodness in others, leaving judgement to God. Her heart and home were always open in WELCOME to her family and friends. She had a special affection for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

HELENS openness to God in faith and to others in love leaves us with the challenge to also live in her authentic spirit of claiming the good in life and in others.
