Helen devoted her life to helping others. She was a life long member of the LDS church, holding many positions along the way. She rarely missed Sunday services, and maintained her unwavering faith to the end of her life.

Memories of days spent with Ras (Helen) have flooded my memory the past couple of days. She was a long time friend that I shared many fun and adventurous days with. In recent years we have only been able to visit on the phone but our friendship remained strong. I wish I could be with you on this day but know that my thoughts and love are with you kids All my love: Curly (Val Jean Curtis)
