  2. We are sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. We have many happy memories of the times we were together at Elk’s bowling tournaments. She was always a delight to be around.

    I always admired her devotion to her faith. I’m sure she is in a better place now.

  3. Dear Richard and family.
    Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
    We have many fond memories of Helen. Her smile was electrifying.
