Helen was born in Lexington, Alabama but grew up in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. She moved all over the world to support her husband’s military career. She mainly spent her years being a home maker and an extremely caring wife and mother. She attended several schools and acquired certifications and licenses, though chose not to make a career for she would rather spend time with her family. She and Gene resided in Smyrna, Tennessee for the past 48 years. She was involved in Al Menah Shriners and a member of the Smyrna Lions Club and Eastern Star.

She was the life of the party. She never met a stranger and had a passion to help others. She found the good in everyone. Her laugh and joy were contagious. She enjoyed reading her bible daily. In her spare time she enjoyed playing cards, solitaire, sudoku, and cross words. Honey always dressed to perfection. She was so loved and will be missed by everyone.
