Helen was like a mother to all and Farmington’s babysitter for years. She was a member of Farmington Methodist Church and the Order of the Eastern Star. She enjoyed her walls being full of pictures, her plants and flowers. She collected angels, chickens and geodes. Her biggest joy was being able to watch her grandchildren grow up and the short time that she was able to spend with her great grandchildren.
