While working at Michigan Bell, Helen met her husband to be and they were married and had nine children. Helen was creative and intelligent; she wanted to make each day a celebration! Helen was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder around age 50. She loved daisies! She was a mother, mentor and friend until she passed away in 2004. Daisy Petals is named in Helen’s honor!
