She was born on Jan. 5, 1954 to the Rev. Earl and Annabelle (Hoffer) Helmick. She enjoyed her family, gardening and working with her hands. The love of her life were her cats.

Burial will follow in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery. The family expresses a special thank you to her physician, Dr. Jerry Mitchell and to Hospice and all the nurses for their care.
