Helen enjoyed being a homemaker and taking care of her family meant the world to her. All the holidays were shared together, leaving us many precious memories to forever cherish. Making ceramics became a family hobby enjoyed by all. Her interests also included playing Scrabble and doing crossword puzzles.
We remember with love happy times of family reunions, shared vacations to the seashore, Caribbean cruises to Mexico, Cancun and Bahamas, and extensive travels to many states including Maine, New York, Tennessee, Florida, Utah, California, Hawaii and neighboring Canada. As we traveled together we were all afforded the beauty of God’s creations.
Helen saw beauty in flowers, birds, butterflies and angels. Spending time with her family, grandchildren and great grandchildren was her greatest joy. She will always be affectionately remembered as Mom-Mom.
Helen was a life long member of Covenant United Methodist Church in Schuylkill Haven. She loved her church and church family as they shared together their faith and friendship. It was a beautiful blessing which she treasured deeply.
