Helen worked as a RN in the obstetrics department at Bedford Memorial Hospital.  Helen requested as a statement for all who befriended her after her 70’s that she was in fact a very caring, loyal, and loving person, who just finally discovered her inner witch around age 75.  So she let that witch out for her last years on earth.  She only wishes to inform her friends that she used to be nice and makes no apologies for the freedom she experienced following those nice years.  She loved quilting, and cherished her weekly quilting and card nights.
