In 1940, she became a member of the First Presbyterian Church at New Philadelphia and was also a member of the church’s women’s circle and loved playing bridge in a local bridge club.

I enjoyed many years of helping take care of Helen. She will be missed so much,loves her sense of humor we always had good laughs even on her bad days. She always called me Agnus instead of Amber,she said that name suited me better so I called her Helen Nicole,it always made her laugh. Love you Helen ,I'll be missing you.

Sorry to hear of the loss of Helen. My mom and I have thought of Helen a lot over the years. Didn't know she was at Park. My mother Vivian is there too. Helen and Chuck and Dottie and Leo and my parents were good friends. Haven't seen my mom since March but as soon as I can I will tell her about Helen. Again sorry for your loss. Paula Hines Brick.

A name out of the past...My mom Emma Snyder was in 2 bridge clubs and I am sure Helen was the last standing. I am saddened to learn that Dan a 1971 NPHS classmate had previously passed as I had no idea. My best to Helen’s family.
