Thanks Aunt Helen for a lifetime of great memories. We will miss you so much. Love and prayers to Debbie, Alan and all the family.

Mike and Vicki Grimes

Aunt Helen was such a sweet lady. She will be missed by all who knew her. She was the family historian who we consulted many times. So sad to see her passing, as she was the last of the children of "Grandpa and Grandma Treece". Love to all the family in this sad time.

Jerry and Peggy Treece

We love you very much.Will miss you.
