Memories Timeline


  1. A good, long-time, loyal friend from the days of Imperial Springs. Helen was always very kind to me and my mother, Mirella. She will always hold a special place in our hearts. May God grant her peaceful eternal rest. Sincerely, Franky

  2. Aunt Helen will be remembered as the sweetest, most loving, humble lady. We will miss her notes and regular updates on the family. She never forgot a Birthday or age, she was amazing. She wrote about her family and how much she loved everyone. Lillian and Linda especially took good care of her and we are very sorry for your loss! The obituary was beautifully written! Aunt Helen will be missed by so many, but she is resting peacefully now. With love, Carol (Dellinger) and Mark Clay
