I have only known Ms Bell for the past year as she was in the room next to my Mother, Rae Baker at CCRC; they shared a room during this past October’s flood. She was a kind and gracious person and was a great help in getting my Mother settled in at CCRC. Always smiling and cheerful; take peace in knowing she now rests with her Savior. My Sympathies on your loss. R Michael Baker

I would like to give you my Condolences. You do not know me but my Dad was at CCRC for about 1 and a half years. He passed away in October 2010. It was always a pleasure to see and talk to Helen. Every time that I visited Dad, Helen was always one of the first people I ran into. She was so friendly to my dad and Myself. I will miss her dearly.

My sincere condolences for the loss of your mother, sister and grandmother go out to all. She must have been a fine influence on all your lives. Though I do not know you personally I read her obituary with much interest. Helen’s step-brother, Nathan, was my first cousin. His mother, Rachel Whinnery Harbourt, was the sister of my mother – Mabel Whinnery Stratton. My mother would correspond with Millie, Nathan’s wife, and had some contact after Nathan’s death. I would like to know if the family has any contact with Rusty, Nathan & Millie’s son. I have a few pictures of Nathan and his mother’s family should Rusty be interested. I live near the Walton Retirement Home, and can be contacted at 1194 East Main Street, Barnesville, OH, 43713; 740-425-1267; or giffenwickham@att.net. May your time together today be very blessed with the presence of our Lord. In love, Martha Stratton Giffen
