Helen was a homemaker in the true sense of the word. She was a woman who saw the home as a strong gathering place for family and friends. She was everyone’s “Mom”! Tony and Helen demonstrated a strong love for each other and for the family.

She enjoyed many things: including, her Bible, gospel music and crafts, dried flower arrangements, and she was a big K.U. basketball fan!
