Helen served in every official capacity in those PEO chapters enjoying 50 plus years of membership.  She was also proud and loving grandmother and “GiGi”.

She is survived by daughter, Kim and husband Robert, son Kevin and wife Therese.  Also, grandchildren Chris and Kelly Campbell, Spencer, Katie and great-grandson Braden Campbell, Katie Munn and fiancée Cale Kassel, Travis Munn, Lauren and Allison Haindfield. She also leaves behind her best friend and companion John Ferguson who made the last 15 years of her life rich, full and exciting and a host of friends who loved and appreciated her sense of humor, her sharp wit and superior bridge playing skills!
