This makes my heart so heavy. Helen was such a joy to be around. I am Wanda Villwok's daughter Judy. My mother lived across the street from Helen. We spent quite a bit of time with Helen while I was taking care of my mom. Helen was so special to my mother and I. I will let me siblings know of her passing also as we all loved her. Sending love and hugs to you all.
