Helfers, Maureen Ross 60, fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, passed away surrounded by her loved ones. A caring wife and mother, she will be remembered above all for her commitment to her family; husband M., sons A.and wife S., E. and wife M., D., and D., and two grandchildren T. and C.. After graduating from St. Joseph's Academy in St. Louis, Maureen earned her bachelor of fine arts from Denver University, where she studied drawing and painting.

Later in life, she channeled her creativity into gardening, notably as a St. Louis Master Gardener. This past summer, she won a restoration award from the Ladue Garden Club, along with a conservation award from the National Garden Club of America. A trusted friend and confidante, she was cherished by everyone who knew her. We will forever miss her fun loving spirit and her unfailing optimism. Aside from her immediate family, she is survived by six siblings, S., M. and wife L., N., M., B., K.; twenty-three nieces and nephews, and her Gordon Setters, Addie and Tallulah.
