  • Helen and I became “BEST BUDS” while working at Sprint. We would run away on the weekends and our favorite place to run to was Amish country! After marrying Dave and leaving Ohio, we still kept in touch by phone and when they came home to visit, she and I made sure to get together to enjoy each other. She loved her family so much, and I after meeting her mother, several of her brothers, her sons, grandchildren and even a couple of nephews, I understood the love they had for each other. I will always remember my bud, that smile and laugh! My sincere condolences to you all …

  • Deepest Condolences to the Family. Have many good memories of Sis through Shirley Reiter. They were Great friends ❤️ and I am sure she was waiting for Sis . I can only imagine the celebration going on with the 2 of them together again.. Shirley hired me to help her do some things around her house way back in the day and I am pretty sure I spent more time at her huge table playing games with Shirley, Sis & Dave. The table talk between those 3 was memorable.. Hold onto your precious memories..
