Helen Betty Gantt Lahmon

January 09, 1928 ‒ January 20, 2015

Mount Vernon, Ohio

Helen Betty Gantt Lahmon, age 87, of Mount Vernon went to be with Jesus on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 surrounded by her family and loving angel caretakers via Acclaim Hospice and Ohio Eastern Star Home staff.

She was born on January 9, 1928 in Knox County to the late Homer and Lena (Taylor) Gantt.
She married Harold L. Lahmon of Bangs. A member of Beulah Methodist Church and was grateful for Pastor Tim Overly’s visitations and prayers.

She is survived by her daughter and caregiver Katie Campbell of Mount Vernon; and nephews Jerry (Peggy) Gantt of Columbus and Jim (Marge) Gantt of Gambier.

Helen was preceded in death by her loving husband Harold (5-7-1982) and God sent a loving companion of twenty-two years Dean Holt (12-15-2011) and grand-dogs Reggie, Abbie Marie and Howdy.

Helen worked at Kresgees and Woolworth’s stores as a cashier and floor walker and enjoyed being a farmer’s wife over 37 years.

She supported her church and was the best cook ever! She enjoyed gardening, doing plastic canvas, sewing, canning, making lie soap, loving animals and cared deeply and helped widows and anyone sick at home or in a nursing home.

I could never list all the amazing and wonderful things my mother said or did as she continually touched all our lives. Thank you Lord for my mom.

Helen, Harold and Dean were three of the most caring, loving, hardworking people you could ever be privileged to know.

They had a deep faith in God, loved and supported their communities, neighbors, friends and family.
As their daughter I know they are resting in Heaven and I am so grateful for their love and guidance all these years.

Friends may call on Friday from 11-12 at the Flowers-Snyder Funeral Home. A graveside service will follow in Union Grove Cemetery with Pastor Tim Overly officiating.
