LEXINGTON: God’s promises to Helen came true on Thursday, August 30, 2018. She was 89.

She was born November 18, 1928 to parents John & Lela (Davidson) Brimager in Clarkton, MO where she graduated high school.

On May 30, 1947, she married Lawrence “Larry” Vincent and they shared 62 wonderful years of marriage until he passed away in 2010. Now they are together again.

Helen was a member of Diamond Hills Baptist Church for over 50 years where she was a dedicated member of the choir. Her occupation was that of a homemaker but she also worked for several years as a bookkeeper at Reed’s Department Store and as a sales clerk at Lazarus Department Store for 10 years.

In her spare time, Helen took pleasure in reading and crafting. Many people were recipients of her croqueted afghans, table cloths, and Christmas angels, as well as her hand painted butterfly houses. She was a member of a ladies craft club for over 20 years. She also enjoyed researching her genealogy and sharing the stories of her life with her children and grandchildren. Her pie baking skills were enjoyed by both family and friends who could always request their favorite pie.

She is survived by children Janice & Brian McQuade of Lexington, Kenneth & Sandra Vincent of Fountain Hills, AZ and Carol & Keith Darling of Westerville; grandchildren Nicole & Dr. Chris Mazzarella, Matt & Amanda McQuade, Dr. Kendell & Josh Simms, Michael Vincent, and Kaela Darling; great-grandchildren Annelise, John and Seanna Mazzarella, Esther, Beatrice and Henry McQuade and Maya, Griffin and Eliza Lou Simms; brother Bill & Karen Brimager numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

  • My husband Merle and I met Helen and Larry at church and they welcomed us in to the church family. we enjoyed having them as friends and also in my home I have some of Larry’s wood carvings of animals that he made and Helen painted them for Merle a few years ago. Helen also helped me with some needlepoint projects however mine will never compare to hers. I am blessed to have known Helen. Heaven will now have another member in the choir to join those have gotten to heaven before Helen.
