    I am so sorry to hear of Helen’s passing. We spent many years bowling together and traveling to the women’s state and women’s national bowling tournaments. It was great having her as a team mate. She really did love to bowl. Her family is in my thoughts and prayers and we will always remember her.

    Many people will miss Helen’s nice smile and kind heart. She was a light in the nursery at the hospital for many years and as one of her “hospital friends” I have a lot of good memories.
