Helen was a very special lady. She fought to maintain a sense of normalcy against the debilitating effects of dementia. She had a relationship with the Lord, and is finally at peace. If you knew Helen, then you know that she was a devoted wife to Jerry for 65 years; a caring mother to her three daughters and their spouses, Gay Lynn (Rick) Hull, Jean Marie (Tony) Numrich, and Susan (Scott) Anderson; and her son, Stacey Suchy; along with being a loving grandmother to her four grandchildren, Abbi Hull, Mandy Hull, Kyle Sheely and Andrew Hull. Helen was an avid walker and an excellent cook. Her friends considered her a loyal treasure, and she valued their lifelong friendships. She truly enjoyed her family and the company of others. Her smile, joy, and sense of humor will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.
