She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, E.W. (Bill) Coffey in 2007; and several of her brothers and sisters.

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.
