Helen was born to Thurman Douglas and Frances Irene Patterson in Portales, N.M. on June 21, 1947. Throughout her childhood years she lived in Big Springs, where she attended school and graduated in 1965, from Big Springs High School. Later she lived in Haleyville, Ala. and London, Ky.
Helen moved to Christoval in 1983, and made Christoval her home. She was a hard worker and worked for Lone Star Gas for many years and later worked for Sitel until her illness prevented her from working. While working at Sitel Helen made many special friends who became her extended family. Helen was a devoted Christian and loved her Lord. She had a big heart and always put the needs of others before her own. She had a smile that we will never forget, and she will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her father; grandparents; one sister, Karen Hamm; daughter Sara Hood; and granddaughter Kea Miller. Helen is survived by her mother; daughter Melissa "Missy" Cannon and husband Bufus "Jr." of San Angelo; sisters Shirley Ann Hoadley of Midland, Sandra Doris Butler and husband Harvey "Jake" of Christoval; grandchildren Brianna Sanders of San Angelo, Tiera Bamberg of Arlington; and great-grandchildren Keon and Kaiden Sanders, both of San Angelo. Mom, you will always be my hero, and you remain the wind beneath my wings.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to help with funeral expenses.
