Helen was a homemaker and loved to work in her garden. She had three loving children, Patricia L. Paris, Robert R. Bireline and Susan K. Kinney, and loved being with her family and friends most of all. Saturday mornings at Helen and Bill’s house was the gathering place for coffee and doughnuts.

Helen married William G. Pentecost in 1974, and he survives.
