  • so sad i knew Helen from many years ago as a kid in the neighborhood growing up…knew both her sons and her hubby willy…..RIP Helen..

  • I’m so sorry to hear about Helen. She was a great person. I really loved and enjoyed taking care of her while she was at the Laurels and at Ohio Eastern Star. I became really close to her. I gave her the nickname giggles because she giggled everytime you took care of her. She was my favorite resident and I will miss her very much. I love you Helen Wolfe.
