Helen’s family wishes to extend their gratitude to the staff of both Jefferson House and Lincoln House assisted-living facilities in Yorktown for their loving care and support of Helen during her years of residence there.

A private memorial service will be held for the immediate family.

Arrangements are being handled by Brown-Butz-Diedring Funeral Service & Crematory.
