Helen attended Dixie College, where she met Patricia Terry, whose friendship impacted her deeply her whole life. Helen delighted in serving a full, Spanish-speaking mission to Mexico. She used her skills at various times following to act as an interpreter for those needing such help. She lived most her life in “Long Valley” and worked for 30+ years at the Thunderbird motel.

She was active in The Church of Jesus Christ, serving in various positions in the Relief Society and as secretary for the Young Women, Primary, and the Family History Center.
