Helen & John moved their family to Lindsay, California in 1958 and lived there the remainder of their lives. Helen worked at Lindsay District Hospital as a Housekeeping Supervisor for 26 years. After working her normal eight- hour shift, she would spend extra time on the convalescent wing talking to the residents and listening to their stories. During her life, Helen enjoyed square dancing, shuffleboard, fishing, gardening, and RV'ing to any and everywhere. She was an avid walker who inspired many residents younger than her to exercise. She loved to sit on the beach and watch the waves roll in and out. Her greatest joy was watching her children, grand- children & great grandchildren at their various sporting events, dance competitions, choir performances & plays never letting her health interfere with attendance.
Helen is survived by four children, 13 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren, in addition to her sister Thelma Downing (Lindsay, CA), and many nieces & nephews. She was loved by all and will be dearly missed.
