Helen enjoyed writing poetry, singing, dancing and playing bingo. Like many of us, Helen loved to eat! She also liked flowers, especially roses and carnations.
Although she didn't have children of her own, she was very giving and loving to her many nieces and nephews.
Helen leaves to cherish her memories, two sisters, Mary Lou Jackson and Lucille Quarles; one brother, Donald Lewis all of Newark, Delaware; a very devoted niece, Lisa Minor, also from Newark, Delaware; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, her church family and friends.
