Dear Aunt Helen, you will be missed by so many. Your generosity of spirit, love in action and walk with Christ was ever present. I am comforted by the fact that you are finally with your groom, and with your creator. Special thanks to the funeral home for allowing those who couldn't be at the service to experience it virtually..that was such a gift that I wasn't expecting. Steele family, you are in my thoughts.

Miranda Fleeger, great neice

Helen and Bob were a very special couple. The impact they made on many,  they never even realized, was monumental, Always humble and were dedicated to serving God in their daily lives as well as in their church. Friends of my parents and our daughters recall going to the basement at the original Olive Branch Baptist Church to Miss Helen’s class when we visited from Ky. Was a blessing to have her visit with myself, Mother, Areva and Aunt Peggy in August 2011. My condolences to Bob and Tom and their families .

My condolences to Bob & Tom & families.  I remember Helen as a very sweet lady...she and my mom were friends when I was a little girl.  I even remember our families visiting often during my early childhood.  I will be sure and let my dad know.  Glad she is finally home.  Prayers for peace for you all.  - Rebecca (Anderson) Roach.  Daughter of Abe & Barbara Anderson.
