I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Helen. I was just getting out my Christmas list to send her a card. She will be deeply missed at Trinity. Fond memories, Lisa Gebhardt

Helen was a great lady and a great help to my Mom. She really made Mom's ability to stay in her home,for as long as she did, not only possible but pleasant. Thanks for sharing her.

Helen was a wonderful woman who touched so many lives. I have fond memories of her bringing us shopping, taking us to Bischoff's for ice cream, and even driving me to visit Annie at camp when they had a special event going on that day.

My love and prayers go out to the entire family. May she rest in eternal peace.
