Helen had many interests and loved to laugh and have a good time. She had a smile that lit up the room. Helen took great pride in her home. She loved gardening, reading, music, poetry, travel, and clothes. She was quite the fashionista. She was loved and respected by all that had the pleasure of knowing her.
