Helen, as with so many others, was the first person I met at Woods over twenty years ago. We got to know each other in an adult education class before I was a member. Her presence here at Woods encouraged me and my husband to become active members. Through the years we were on various committees but most importantly my relationship never seemed to change even as we did not interact as frequently in recent years. No matter when I saw her, she took such a personal interest in me and my family. Her joyful spirit always brightened my day whenever we talked. Her love of the Lord always shined with her smiling eyes. A more positive, cheerful person I have never known and I will miss her deeply.
