Helen was preceded in death by her parents Adam and Frances Gill and her beloved sisters Stephania Daksiewicz, Jean Clincher their spouses and Emil Gill, all of Michigan. She is the last of her generation of two sides of the family. In Helen’s final years she relied on a small group of care providers, outside of the ministrations of her family, who helped her to enjoy her life to the fullest: Kathy Clincher, Pam Zinn and Jennifer Horrigan. Helen always had deep gratitude for their presence in her life. Helen participated daily in this prayer community for many years. It brought her deep kinship with other loving and like-minded people. In her final years at her home in Canton, Helen was brought communion and visited by a devoted group of people that included Mary Kay and Marcel Loosbrock, Claudia Morris and Elizabeth Thomas. They allowed her to continue to worship.
