Helen was a real inspiration and a delightful member of our Craft group at Contactivity. She did the most beautiful and intricate work despite her handicap. We admired her and will miss her happy personality.
My condolences to the family.

Helen was a much admired and valued member of our Contactivity Crafts group. It has been such a privilege to know her, recipients of her tenacity, joie de vivre, and her delightful sense of humour.
And how proud Helen was of her needlepoint projects ! They were an absolute work of art.

Helen will be missed.

My deepest sympathy and heartfelt thoughts,
