Aunt Helena was a beautiful woman, Mom ( Verna Stowell ) spoke of her alot. I never saw my aunts Gladys, Doris and Blanche. Probably they are gone to. I believe Mom was the oldest.

Im so sorry to hear of Helen's passing. I think of her often and miss calling and visiting with her as well as those surprise visits when running into each other in Cortland. Much love and prayers to everyone. God Bless you all.

Aunt Helen you will be fondly missed. I always remember your warm hospitality and kind heart whenever we visited. In her last few years my mother greatly appreciated her visits and singing with Uncle Henry and you.
