Helen was devoted to her Church, her family and her friends.  For many years, she played piano and taught Sunday School at the Stillwater Christian Church.  Helen and her husband would give rides to Church to many people in the Benton area.

She was a lifelong homemaker and assisted on the farm doing chores and running the John Deere tractor on the farm. She enjoyed crocheting, reading her bible, spending time with her grandchildren, visiting her friend, Winifred and sitting on the radiator watching the humming birds out her window.  She will be dearly missed until we see her again in Heaven.
