July 6, 1925 - Jan. 5, 2014

HILLSBORO, Ohio — Helen Loraine (Osborne) Carver, 88, passed away Jan. 5, 2014, at her residence.

Helen was born on July 6, 1925, in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. She grew up in Missouri and later moved to Anderson, Ind.

Helen married the love of her life, Glen Carver, on Dec 22, 1984, in Troy, Ohio. Glen has treated Helen like a queen since he met her. He has taken the greatest care of her.

The family would like to send a special thank you to Helen and Glen’s friend Mary Priest for helping to care for Helen.

Helen is survived by her children; daughter, Mary Helen Brown, deceased (Eugene), grandchildren, Scott (Bryanna) Brown, Gina Brown, great-grandchildren, Ryan, Emily, Sophia, and Tanner; daughter, Sandra Sue Battreal, grandchildren, Marsan Newell, Michelle Ayres, Marcus Pope, great-grandchildren, Brittany, Trenton, Leslie, Lindsey and great-great-grandchild, Gabriel; daughter, Janie (Steve) Hiday, grandchildren, Jason Hiday, Bobby Hiday, and Stephanie Hiday, and great-grandchildren, Sophie T, Parker, Payton.

Helen is also survived by Glen’s children; son, Carson (Cookie) Carver, grandchildren, Jason Carver, Todd Carver, Travis Carver, and great-grandchildren, Kaydon, Christopher, Austin; daughter, Sheila Carver, grandchild, Derek Carver, and great-grandchildren, Emilee and Clayton; daughter, Sharon Crabtree, grandchildren, Aaron Crabtree, Stephanie Martin, and great-grandchildren, Colton and Bailey; and son, Jay (Julie) Carver.

Helen was preceded in death by her parents, Mildred and Guy Osborne; daughter, Mary Helen Brown; sisters, Betty, Norma; and brothers, George, Fred, Gail, R.Q., and Bill.

Helen took great pride in being a mother and grandmother. She truly enjoyed all her grandchildren and great grandchildren especially in her older years. She enjoyed working with her flowers and garden every summer. Her family will always have great memories of their many vacations together in Florida. She was not your usual Grandmother, she was a mover and a shaker. She was a very sharp dresser and always looked her best.
