Dear Joan, so sorry to have missed Helen's services, I love you both. George was sick and we could not go anywhere. He is better now. Your Mom was such a wonderful person, we always enjoyed being with you guys. She had a good life, was always smiling. We called her "Joan's Mom". I will treasure the pictures we have of FEMA retirements with you and Mom in them. Take care. Praying for you. Carolyn and George

I have know the Funkhouser Family for the past 5 yrs. I have had to opportunity to work with Joan and Anthony over these years. I finally got to meet Helen "Mama" and it was great to meet someone with such a beautiful soul and personality. I told Joan she was truly an angel among us. This past February we had dinner with Joan, Mama, and my family. We shared a lot of laughs and smiles. My family was touched by her personality and her ability to continuously smile. My family and I send our deepest condolences to Joan and Anthony but we know Mama will be guiding them with her wings from above.

in 1966, just arrived in USA with Helen’s nephew Robert Williams (my late husband) and got the warmest welcome from Helen, her mom, and her 2 youngest children that played with my son like they were brothers. Joan supervised. Helen’s smile and love will always be with me . God bless and keep you Aunt Helen. that
