Helen was a member of the former Tecumseh Methodist Church and the Everett United Methodist Church for over 65 years. She was employed by the Everett Lion Manufacturing Co. and was also a 25 year employee of the Everett School District as an assistant cook at the high school. After retiring she babysat for many families in the area. She looked forward to seeing the beautiful sunshine every day. Her love of flowers was shown through the several flower beds she created around her home where she spent many hours weeding. She had a fondness of chickens and, therefore, collected anything decorated with them. Her favorite spot during the warm weather was her porch swing. Helen was loved dearly by her family, friends, and neighbors, and will be greatly missed.
