Helen was born on July 15, 1923, in Collingsworth County Texas, to Leo and LaVada (Humphreys) Kizer. At age four, the family moved to the O.M. Community, north of Hollis, and Helen attended Arnett School. After graduation, Helen moved to Childress and worked at the Robinson-Eubanks Drug Store for several years. She later lived in Rockport, Texas and later Amarillo and Memphis, Texas. On June 17, 1969, she married George A. Brown in Trinidad, Colorado and he preceded her in death on November 24, 1972. Helen spent several years helping the family with their custom combining business. After George's death, she moved to Amarillo and later Rockport before moving back to Hollis in the late 1980's.
