She is also survived by a host of nieces & nephews who she loved as her own children. Helen loved gardening & sewing but, Helen “Hannie” as everyone called her, always had lots of nieces and nephews around and loved every moment of it. I guess you could say kids were her hobby. She was blessed with one child but had lots of children. The kids always stayed at Hannies and loved it. There was never a weekend that she didn’t have at least four extra kids staying with her. When her grandsons Bryan & Brandon were born she was ecstatic. Finally mom got her wish with two beautiful great granddaughters; Whitlee & Ashtyn. She loved those girls, and had lots of adventures with them and made memories we will all cherish.
