Helen was a loving mother and grandmother who loved to dance and in her older years enjoyed looking out her window and watching the traffic go by. For most of her life she lived in Richmond, VA and loved going to Virginia Beach. Helen also loved cats, yard sales, bright clothes, and wearing glitz & glam jewelry. She was known for her long beautiful fingernails that she painted herself and received a lot of compliments on. She had a great sense of humor and always made people laugh with her one-liners. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Friends will be received at Buckhannon Memorial Park for a graveside memorial service on Friday, August 9, 2019 at 1 PM with the Rev. J. Edward McDaniels officiating. Online condolences may be made to the family at www.polingstclair.com. Poling-St. Clair Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
