GALENA–Helen Frances Mayberry left us on June 25, 2021, but knowing Helen, she would say she was still here. She would contend that the memories in the minds of her loved ones would last indefinitely. The strong value she left with her three daughters will prevail. Above all, her love of friends and family will extend a long, long time.

Helen does not want any special grieving process. In fact, she does not want any grieving at all. She asks all who knew her to think kindly of her and as a memorial, do one kind act for a neighbor or friend. Bring someone flowers, take them to their doctor, do something worthwhile and helpful and think of it as a memorial to Helen. She will love that.
