Helen M. Lamb Lilienthal, 102, of West Yarmouth, Mass., died Thursday in Mayflower Place Nursing Center, there. She was the daughter of Alma J. McCluer Lamb of Crawfordsville and spent much of her childhood in the city. Her uncle, Gaylord McCluer, was a well-known business and political circles in the city.
Mrs. Lilienthal was the wife of David E. Lilienthal who served as a chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority under President Franklin Roosevelt. He was appointed chairman of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission in 1947 by President Harry S. Truman.
She was active in community affairs in Norris, Tenn., where she lived from 1936 - 1947. She wrote skits and sketches in her college years and occasionally poetry, much was published.
The Lilienthals moved from Tennessee to Washington D.C., then to New York and finally to Princeton, N.J.

She was a 1919 graduate of DePauw University at Greencastle and received her master's degree in English at Radcliffe College in 1923. She taught English in Oklahoma and Indiana high schools before her marriage in 1923 to David Lilienthal. She also taught at a private girl's school in Chicago.
