November 6, 1930 - January 13, 2020

Helen  joined Altrusa in October  1989.

Helen was a friend, a mentor and an inspiration to anyone  who met her.  She was involved with many causes throughout her life and gave her time and talent to all of them.   Her intelligence, grace, leadership,  compassion,  sense of humor and her never ending curiosity are why it was a joy to be around her.  Helen had a strong belief that because of all the tech devices today we are losing the art of communicating with one another eye to eye.   She spread joy  to all who knew her and that is why so many have said: 

"I want to be Helen when I grow up."
