Helen Winifred Skeates

No services are planned for Helen Winifred Skeates, 101, Lawrence.

Ms. Skeates died Friday, November 26, 2021, at her home.

Mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Strong, independent, determined, and fierce protector of those she considered family. An incredible woman and always full of life.

Helen saw the changes of a full century, experiencing firsthand what most today only know from history books.  She learned so much in her time, and passed on that wisdom of others. She was always willing to adapt to continue providing for her family. Helen further showed her love through her amazing cooking.

She never backed down because of what others might think, standing firm and proud as a single mother in the fifties despite the stigma, then raised her granddaughter’s as well.

She will always be loved, and will be greatly missed as she begins this next stage of her journey. There will always be a part of her watching over and loving her family, a guardian angel just as she was in life.
