Mitzi and Jim, So sorry for the loss of your Mother. Blessings to you both at the difficult time. She will truly be missed. She was a great friend and I have many precious memories of the all fun times of playing cards and domino's with Helen, Marjorie, Harriett and John. Darlene Durand

To the Henderson Family: Helen has been a long-time and faithful member of the Colfax First United Methodist Church for many years. The words shared among the church family are that they remember her as a person who cared and was faithful to be involved where and when she could. The prayers of our church family are with you and your family during this time. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the comfort of God our Father and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all during this time.
