Memories Timeline


  1. I miss you. I wish I could call you and hear your voice. You told me when I was barely tall as a bush in the yard that you were my best friend. And you were. Losing you really hurts Grandma. It’s not the same without you here. Love you.

  2. It seems like yesterday, all the family and friends you cooked for and enjoyed the fellowship. And, all of your fishing buddies and the stories you enjoyed sharing from your fishing outings. You are missed.

  3. I worked with Helen at MPS Food Services. She was an excellent food service manager, cook, and wonderful person. The children of Siefert were lucky you and your crew were there to love and feed them every day.

  4. Love you grandma ❤️. Thanks for leaving us your hot watered cornbread recipe! I loved your hot watered cornbread 😋 You will be missed but never forgotten ❤️🖤💚

  5. Sending love, hugs and encouraging words of strength and comfort to my family during this time. See you on the other side auntie. Kiss my mom and dad and granddaughter for me. Love you, Gloria T (Detroit).

  6. Sleep in peace Auntie Helen, my fellow strong willed Leo. You will be missed so much. Thank you for all the childhood memories. You can now love on your sisters again. I love you forever.

  7. The pain of your loss is beyond what words can describe. You are etched in my heart forever and I know one day I will see you again. Until then, I love you and miss you Grandma. Troy and the kids miss you and love you. I will keep you alive in every memory I recall and share. Kiss and hug my Mama for me.

    Love Always
