    Jay, Phillip and Family, Hearing of Helens passing made me cry for hours. She was a wonderful woman. A great neighbor to my grandparents first and then me and my parents. I remember her love and kindness. It won't be the same going back to Mitchell and seeing her house and her not being there. RIP Helen, your really going to be missed.

    Phil, I remember Helen as a very kind and caring person. She was a neighbor to my grandparents (Actons) on Vine Street and she waited on me many times at Burton City Drug Store. Cherish all your good times and the wonderful memories you shared. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
