Mrs. Helen Arkie Donohew, 92, of Anderson, Mo., departed this life on Saturday morning, June 7, 2008, at the Golden LivingCenter in Anderson, Mo.
Helen was born on April 22, 1916, in Watts, Okla., one of six children born to the late Gus and Lillie (Trammell) Gailey. She moved to Anderson, Mo., as a young woman. She was united in marriage to Andy Donohew and to this union two sons were born. She was a housekeeper for several years before a tragic car wreck in 1969 left her right side permanently paralyzed. She was a lady of determination. After two years of hospitalization and therapy she returned home to Anderson. She enjoyed gardening, canning and sewing. She followed the Full Gospel faith throughout her life. We celebrate her life and look forward to that day of our reunion with her in heaven.
