Hellen was a family friend going back to the 1940's. She was Strong religious person as a youth going to Frist UB Church. She interviewed for a job in the Church headquarters in Dayton, Ohio, which by that time had merged will the Evangical Church.Hellen worked in Dayton thru the merger with the Methodist. I am not sure when she came back home to Winchester & First UM Church. She was a friend to me just like she was to my parents as we worked in the Archives at Shenadoah University.
