Helen was a long time Stanton neighbor. She brought joy to so many with her upbeat spirit and love for socializing. You always felt welcome in her home. She was a wonderful cook and I still refer to her cook book for many family favorites.

Helen was a lovely lady and a thoughtful hostess, with an easy laugh. I was lucky to have known her. She taught me to keep my sugar sifter clean, and I think of her every time I use it! I send my love and sympathy to you, dear Heidi and Scott. xoxo Linda Lynch
