Miss Helen was so full of fun and life. She was always so happy, smiling and a joy to be around. If there was ever a group of people around having fun, you could count on her being in the center of it. She was a dear soul and will be missed by everyone who knew her. My prayers for her family and friends.

I didn't know Helen other than who she was, but everyone spoke well of her which is a fitting tribute to her legacy. My daughter Ashley adored her to no end when she spent a year in school with her. It's too bad the good ones seem to leave too soon. My condolocents to her family and all her friends.

I want to send condolences to Ms. Helen's family. Our community and Nicholas County Elementary School have lost one of our family. She was always a joy to work with at school. She loved working with all our students by teaching them the skills they would need in life. Being there for them with a smile and a pat on the back when they need one. She was a great asset to our school and community and she will be missed dearly by us all.
