Helen married the love of her life, Jimmie, on December 23, 1957. For 62 years, they had worked alongside each other in various business endeavors, building their home, loving on their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, having a huge garden each year, and enjoyed years together as fishing partners. Helen was a devoted member of the Andalusia Full Gospel Church and had taught the little children in Sunday School for over 20 years. Seven years ago, her loving husband, became a faithful member also and joined her in teaching the little ones. Helen loved her church family. She was a devoted homemaker and wonderful “country” cook! She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and church family.
