Helen retired in 1991 from the U. S.

Eisenhower and General Omar N. Bradley.

Helen was a member of Mt. Zion Lutheran Church, Boiling Springs.  She was a 1950 graduate of Lemoyne High School.  She was a member and past president of the American Business Women's Association Camelot Chapter, where she received the Woman of the Year Award.

Her interests included traveling, baking, cooking, painting, piano playing, golfing and cross country skiing in Vermont.

Helen is survived by a son, Terry (Karen) Hurley of Harrisburg, a daughter, Dawn (Terry) Mellick of Carlisle and a cousin, Flo Miller of York.

She was preceded in death by a sister, Carolyn Slothower.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.

The family is grateful for the care provided to their mother by the staff of Arden Courts of Susquehanna, Harrisburg, Chapel Pointe at Carlisle, and Hospice of Central Pennsylvania.
