Grandma Helen’s door was always open, and if you came to visit, you had to stay and eat. She enjoyed having her family around her table. She was an excellent cook, and each one could say what their favorite dish would be…Grandma could even make a frozen pizza taste good! Family was very important to Helen, and she had a fierce love for all. She had a special interest in the lives of each one of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her three children, seven grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren; Barbara (Ray) Bullick, Kristina (Christopher), Hannah, Ashley, Kathryn and Charlotte Mellow, Samuel (Julia), Elea and Leeam Bullick; Dale (Pamela) Parson, Chelsea (Jason) Tracey, Cameron Parson, Courtney (Joel) Torkelson; Beverly (John) Easley, Tina (Travis), Lily and Isaac Hanson, Timothy (Kelly), and Brynnly Colling; as well as numerous other family and friends.
