Helen worked as a beautician out of her home for over 25 years. In addition, she also worked a few years in the kitchen at Wayne Local Schools and a couple more years at Centerville Schools. The position she was most proud of however, was being a mom. She was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church in Waynesville for many years. Helen was a fun loving and devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great great grandmother. In addition, she served as a foster mom to several children over the years. She had a playful side and absolutely loved to tease and pull practical jokes on people. She took every opportunity to scare or startle others by doing such things as pretending a big dog was in the basement, purposely putting pepper in a chocolate pie, and bringing a pony into her home. She also greatly enjoyed gardening in her free time and collecting porcelain snow angel figurines. Among the many things, she will be remembered for her love of coffee and Coca Cola, and for her homemade biscuits and gravy. Back when her late daughter served on the fire department, she enjoyed cooking her delicious biscuits and gravy for the first responders during the Sauerkraut Festival.

She is survived by three children Mary (Joe) Myers, Loyd L.
