Messages & Condolences

From Nancy & Gary McPherson...

Helen was a special woman. I remember her love for family and her hospitality to visitors. She was a great cook and filled tummies to the brim when dining at her table. I visited her at home in Circleville while she was remodeling the bathroom doing all the work herself. I doubt there was anything she could not do. Her hands were never idle. Helen is remembered by me with good memories. May you rest now, in peace.

From Loren & Beth Mitchell...

Sharon, Deb & families. so sorry about your loss. I was like Ed, I thought she had already passed. Sorry

Sharon. I did not realize your mother was still living. It seems the girls that worked at Slimakers were long lived. Sorry for your loss.

Sharon and Deb,

I didn’t know Helen well but Goldie has often related to me the many fond memories of their times together growing up. She often says Helen could do anything – great cook, seamstress, etc.

I’m sorry for your loss.

From Debra Hepp...

Deb and family,
My condolences in the loss of your mother. I had only a few chances to meet her but I know she was very much loved by all of you. You are in my prayers.

From Phyllis Shupe...

Sharon, Debra, and families, extending sympathy and condolences in the loss of your mother. When able, know she enjoyed her grandchildren. A long time ago (’70’s) I met Helen at the many horse shows. She and Floyde coming out to our trail rides and campouts, memories, memories. To me, she was a very quiet woman. Now, know she is in good hands with our Lord. Prayers to you all.
