We send our sympathy to the family. She was very kind to us. We will always remember the fun times going back and forth to BGSU with Dick & Helen. Eating out together was always fun too. As our neighbor, she was a good listener. God bless you all and we were privileged to know her and her family.

My Dad,Jim Wagner, and Dick were close friends growing up. Years later, we met Helen when they came to visit us in Florida. My mother and Helen became instant friends and it turned into a beautiful, long friendship. I will miss the wonderful visits with Helen when mother and I came to Ohio each year and when she came to visit us. I feel blessed to have known such an amazing woman. Her love of life, her love and devotion to her family, her intelligence, her optimism, her loyalty to friends touched me in so many ways. I will miss her always. My deepest sympathy to her family. She was a treasure. I hope you find peace in the memories you have of her.
