Helen was a 1945 graduate of Delphi High School. Following high school, she went to Washington, D.C., to work for the U.S. Navy Department until the end of World War II. She was retired from the Logansport Community School Corp., where she had worked as a teacher’s aide for more than 40 years.

Helen was a member of Wheatland Avenue United Methodist Church, where she had been active in the Ruth Circle as well as many other church activities. She was a member of the Royal Center Chaper No. 375 Order of Eastern Star. For many years, she served as a Gray Lady volunteer at Memorial Hospital. At age 57, Helen and her sister, Kit, traveled all over the world, visiting every continent except Antarctica.

Surviving are two daughters and sons-in-law, Donna and Pete Kresge of Indianapolis and Becky and Dennis Mygrant of Idaville; one brother, Bob Scowden of Monticello; two sisters, Dot McCormick of Delphi and Kit Rehwald of Pompano Beach, Fla.; six grandchildren, Mike (Shannon) Hall, Jennifer (Danny) Talbert, Dawn Haas (Ty), Shae (Rod) Lobinthal, Lindsay (Brad) Davis and Jonathan (Kim) Kresge; nine great-grandchildren, Tara, Cami, Christian, Colin, Dylan, Lilly, Addy, Anna and Landon; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Diane Rance in 2001, and seven siblings.

Services will be 1 p.m. Tuesday at Wheatland Avenue United Methodist Church, with Pastor Carolyn DeWitt and Chaplain Scott Ellison officiating. Interment will follow in Mount Hope Cemetery.

Friends may call from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday at Fisher Funeral Chapel. Visitation will also be held one hour prior to the services at the church.
