Helen was my late mother's cousin, my mother was Gertrude Quinn Hearn Van Veen. My grandfather was Helen's uncle, James H. Quinn. I remember visiting Helen and her parents many times, when they lived near St. Paul's and at the lake; we shared many good times. May Helen rest in peace, reunited now with her beloved family.

We met Helen at the Cathedral in 2009, when it became our Parish. She was there very often- a real prayer warrior. It became increasingly harder for her to come to church when her arthritis engulfed her whole body. But I still know where she sat- the same seat always. We miss her sweet smile, even when she was hurting. What a special Feast day of her passing! St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. Look her up, if you don’t know her story! May Helen RIP! May she RIP

I am truly sorry for your loss. May God give you and your entire family strength and bring you joy and peace that you deserve. The scriptures in Revelation 21:4 gives us encouragement. God promises death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. So we know that all these things that bring pain in our lives will be done away with in the future. Please read them and they will give you strength and hope during this tough time.
