Fred and I and our family are saddened by the death of my sister, aunt and great aunt Helen. She was very special to all of us and especially to me. I will miss her, but I know she is free of pain and worries and in a better place.
She had a great smile and a wonderful way to make everyone feel that they were important and deserve the best life could give them. She was a fabulous cook and her family enjoyed all she created for them.
Her life was her boys, her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Rest In Peace my sister

I just heard today and am sick to my stomach. She was just so energetic and loving. She always told me she loved me and I her. There are very few people in this world I will miss as much. I could go on and on about this wonderful woman and the fun times we had. With much sorrow I am and will be thinking of all of you. Claudia ❤️
