Helen loved her family and was a devoted friend to many. She and Elmer raised their family in San Antonio, Texas. They were members of South San Antonio Baptist Church for many years.
After Elmer’s retirement, they moved to Pearsall, Texas. She was an active member of First Baptist Church Pearsall, Texas for 21 years. She served on the kitchen committee, worked in VBS, and was a member of the Ladies Bible Class and the “Road Runner” senior group.
Liz, as she was known by most, had a love for birds and butterflies. She cared for and raised many baby doves that fell from the nests in her yard. She loved cooking, sewing, quilting, embroidery, dominoes, hunting, and fishing.
Moved to McKinney, TX in 2014 to be near their daughter and enjoyed living at Pioneer Ridge Retirement Community. Her biggest joy was seeing their grandchildren and great-granddaughters come to know the Lord.
