I was privileged to know and work with Helen at ACMC. She always had positive words to speak and was kind to everyone. She worked very hard and kept the maternity unit looking great for the staff and patients. Helen helped the nurses when we needed that extra hand cleaning up what we did not have time to clean. May God give her family peace as you grieve this amazing woman.

I am going to miss the casino trips we took to Erie. They were fun times when we went with Curtis jr. Plus our trip to West Virginia Casino. You were a loving Great Grandma to Nina, Samantha and Sophia. They will miss you greatly. RIP Helen I was happy to have made you a Gambling Buddy.

I have felt since 1970 that Helen was my second mother and her husband Curtis was my second father. They and their children helped me through my mother Patsy's illness (cancer 4 yrs.)and death in May 1971. Her daughter Trudee and I were married in August 1971 and were blessed with two wonderful children, Christopher and Mindee. Much has happened and changed through the years, but what was true in 1970 is true in 2020- Helen is still my second MOM. May the Lord rest your beautiful soul. Deepest Sympathy to All the Family, Gary.
