Survived by son, Byron Thomas Jr., husband of Linda (Cummings), Sidman; daughter, Donna, wife of Ronald Crowell, South Fork; and brother, Leonard, husband of Melda (Berkebile), Somerset. After Byron’s passing, Helen’s purpose in life was her grandchildren: Brad Thomas, Ryan (Nicole), Jared (Heather), and Alecia Crowell; her great-grandchildren: Wade, Adessa, and Olena; and her step-great grandchildren: Heath & Mya. She was so proud of her grandchildren and absolutely loved cheering for them in various ways. Helen was a 1950 graduate of Beaverdale High School. She spent her early adult years as a military wife living with her in-laws learning how to cook & bake and making fond memories at Camp Hartley. Helen was a faithful steward & member of Sidman United Methodist Church, where she spent many years with the Ladies Circle and various other volunteer positions. She loved worshiping from the same pew every Sunday, watching Cubs baseball, and completing word searches.
