Helen was one of my favorite customers at the Library. She always smiled and read christian books.

It was such a blessing to know Helen and to work with her. She was a dedicated Hospice of North Iowa employee and volunteer. Helen always had a smile on her face and a kind word for everyone. She was a faithful servant of her Lord. “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”
