Helen was more like an Aunt than a cousin to me. She was such a beautiful person, inside and out. Love and miss you always.
Helen was more than a cousin to me, she was like a sister. She’s been in my life, all my life. She will be greatly missed, but I know she is happy in Heaven with her parents, sister, and son. I will miss her and I will love her forever. Carrol, Barb, Jeff, Glenda you are in my thoughts and prayers. Arvilla (Pat) Pierson Selfridge
Heaven has gained the sweetest Angel that walked on this earth. Helen loved and was loved by so many people during the years. My thoughts and prayers are with Carrol, Barb and Jeff. My deepest condolences to the entire Newcomb family. Love to all.
Helen was my sweet cousin . Two weeks apart in age . We have been close and good friends our whole life . We spent our summers together when we were little girls . Her family would come home with us after church and my mother and hers would fry chicken and cook all the good food . My dad and hers would start the ice cream freezers late afternoon and back to church we would go . Then take turned spending our summers together . She was one of Gods angels here on earth and now in heaven . I will miss her text and our long visits . My love goes to her wonderful husband and her children . Reba Dene Murphy Justice
