  1. I was very sorry and sad to hear the news of Helen. She and I were friends for many years through our connection to Duck Woods. Helen always, always had a smile on her face and was so gracious to everyone. She often was the first to volunteer when help was needed. Her friendship and presence will certainly be missed.

  2. I am sorry to hear about her passing. She was a gracious woman who I enjoyed interacting with her over the course of the 21 years I worked at Duck Woods.

  3. Helen was my husband’s stepsister. She and Joe were gracious hosts when we visited from Minnesota. During one of our visits they took us to Washington DC each day for a week! We appreciated Helen’s artistic and culinary abilities. Blessed be her memory.

  5. While we all wish she was still with us, she will live on in our hearts. A special “Thank you” to all my aunt’s many friends for your friendship and care these past few years.
