Helen was born Sept. 8, 1928, in Breckenridge, to Raymond C. and Willie (Lindsey) McDonald. She was a sweet, compassionate, loving, and incredible wife, mother, sister, aunt, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Helen loved her family and family gatherings, and was their heart and moral compass. She will be missed, but we rejoice in the blessed assurance that we will see again all those who have passed on before. A firm believer in helping others, Helen was a strong supporter of the orphans in Kankoole, Uganda, Africa.
