Helen was a beautiful woman loved by many. She found that the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving. To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – But we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor. With her lord and forever cherished in our memory. The family wishes to thank the staff at Evergreem Baptist Home for the loving care they gave Mom.

Memorial service will be held on Sat. August 28, 2010 2:30 pm at Evergreen Baptist Home, 1550 Oxford Street, White Rock. Extra parking across the street.
