Helen will be celebrating her 103rd birthday Sept. 13. She was named a Notable for her service to our country during World War II and volunteer work with several organizations in Geauga County. She enlisted in the first unit of the U.S. Navy’s Women’s Auxiliary (WAVES) and served from September 1942 to June 1946. Subsequently, Helen became a physical therapist until her retirement when she started writing. Her poetry was published in a book, “I Shall Be Old.”
