Helen's sweet nature and unmistakable laugh are part of my childhood. She and Dick were great friends of my parents, and even when I became an adult, the infrequent times I would see Helen would always bring a smile. My condolences to Marita and all her siblings for the loss of their sweet mother.

My sisters and I often reminisce about the parties our parents had, and Helen's infectious, easy laugh. She and Dick were such great friends to my parents. She will be missed.

In memory of my dear Godmother and Aunt Helen. When I was a little girl and living in Evergreen Park you always treated like one of your own.When I would visit and get those ear infections you always took such good care of me. You will alway be on my mind and in my prayers. Love, your niece Kathleen
