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.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Andy Donohew; a son, J.D. Donohew; two sisters, Lucy Donohew and Marie Lowery; and a brother, Johnny Gailey.

Helen is survived by a son, David Donohew and Sharon Keyes of Anderson, Mo.; three grandchildren, Crystal, Maggie and Jesse; two sisters, Essie Buechler of Anderson, Mo., and Lillian Gustine Moore of Galena, Kan.; several nieces and nephews; as well as a host of other family and friends.

Funeral services for Helen Arkie Donohew were 11 a.m. Tuesday, June 10, 2008, in the Anderson Chapel of the Ozark Funeral Homes with Bro. Rob Walker officiating. Burial followed in the Peace Valley Cemetery in Anderson. Those honoring her life by serving as pallbearers were David Donohew, Sharon Keyes, Johnny Hutcheson, Randy Hutcheson, Steve Hutcheson and Les Hutcheson.

For a 'COUNTRY WOMAN' -- who knew the value of sewing, gardening, canning and enjoying the best life - that of 'a good person'.
