Helen married Harry Reed in 1944 and had 1 daughter, Sharon Reed (Rimmer). Harry was a career Navy man and they were stationed in several places in the U.S. and Japan.
Upon retirement the couple started a dry-cleaning business in Mount Vernon Washington which they operated until 1966. Following that retirement, they travelled extensively in their Air Stream trailer before settling in Mesa Az, and a summer home on the Stillaguamish river near Arlington, Wa.
They both were avid square dancers and hikers in both Washington and Arizona and were members of the Velda Rose United Methodist Church in Mesa. Helen is survived by her daughter, Sharon, son-in law Mike Rimmer, grandsons Mike jr., and Joel Rimmer and 3 great granddaughters. A grave-site service is planned to be held May 16th 2:00 p.m. at the Cave Creek National cemetery.
