Helen worked for Pratt and Whitney during WWII for the war effort. She was a member of Nebo Baptist Church. She was a faithful homemaker with a passion for feeding her family and loved ones. Helen was an excellent cook and the large family meals will be greatly missed. She also had a tender heart for cats and made sure not one in the area went away hungry.
