Helen was the daughter of Charles Henry Smith and Lizzie Gertrude Pitts Smith.

Helen Smith Beckcom, 87, died peacefully and went to be with our Lord on May 14, 2008. She was born in Bullard, Texas on December 12, 1920 and was a proud member of the Bullard High School Class of 1938 where she was valedictorian. Even though she was a farm girl at heart, she and her late husband, Dr. Edwin A. Beckcom, Jr., traveled to many parts of the world including Turkey, Germany, England, and the Holy Land while serving in the United States Air Force. As a warm and wonderful hostess, she was able to make everyone around her feel comfortable and special. In short, Mrs. Beckcom and her husband lived a full, complete, and rewarding life. She will be greatly missed because she was such a joy and inspiration to all who knew her. She is survived by a son Edwin A. Beckcom, III and his wife Janice of Ft. Worth and a daughter Kathryn Warren and her husband Eddie of Frisco; four grandsons Brian and Brett Beckcom of Houston and Jason and Justin Warren of McKinney. Also, Mrs. Beckcom had four great-grandchildren, Gus, Ella, Henry, and Addison Beckcom.
