Helen was the daughter of Emery Lee Young and Clara Elizabeth Hackler Young. She was the second child in a family that would grow to include 10 children. Her brother Harold was born just a year earlier and following her were Betty, Ethel, Emery, Robert, Lester Thomas (Tom), Peggy, Mary and Sue. Growing up in a large family during the depression Helen was often put in charge of the younger children and had many household responsibilities. She always worked very hard and was a great help her parents. As a young woman during WWII, Helen worked as a waitress at the Seville restaurant in downtown Indianapolis and would later tell exciting stories of the many band leaders and actors who passed through town during the very busy war years. She later worked a short time for Allisons before she finally went to work for Eli Lilly and Co. where she would work for the next 40+ years. During this time, Helen worked her way up from assembly line, to polio vaccine testing and finally became a lab technician for the company. She loved and appreciated her job at Eli Lilly and enjoyed the people she worked with over the years. Helen married William Caster of New Ross, Indiana on June 6, 1948 and they had two daughters. Helen loved her family, enjoyed reading, travel, gardening, wasn't too wild about television and was very accomplished at needlework.
