Birth: Aug. 18, 1920
Death: May 1, 2005

Helen Louise (Certain) Beaird was born on August 18, 1920, to Russell and Margaret Certain in Okmulgee, OK. Helen attended school in Oklahoma City and graduated from Central High School in 1938. Also in 1938, she married James F. Beaird, Jr., who would become her loving husband of 57 years. Helen and James had one daughter, Kay, who was the light of their lives. Besides being the best mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother in the world, Helen kept busy by doing many volunteer activities. When her daughter was young, Helen was active in Kay's school and acted as Girl Scout Leader and PTA volunteer. Helen ran the Tuesday Meals-on-Wheels program at First Christian Church, where she was an active member for over 70 years. Additionally, Helen served as a Baptist Hospital Auxiliary Member, where she volunteered in the Gift Shop every Wednesday for 30 years. Although she always considered herself a "resident of Oklahoma City," for the last few years of Helen's life, Helen lived in Tulsa, OK, where she could be near her family. Her family will be forever grateful that they spent Helen's final years with her living nearby. Her great-grandchildren are very lucky to have known and loved "Grandma Helen," and a little white dog named Snowman will always be thankful for his visits to Helen's, where she spoiled him with love and hotdogs. Helen peacefully passed away on May 1, 2005, with her family surrounding her with love and comfort. Helen is survived by her daughter, Dr. Kay Beaird Meyers, her granddaughter, Angela Margaret Meyers, her great-grandchildren Cassidy and Sam Meyers, her niece Diane Studie, her grandniece Lisa and grandnephew Scott. Helen was preceded in death by her husband James F. Beaird, Jr., her parents Russell and Margaret Certain, and her sisters, Margie Kay and Martha Chapin. Helen is deeply loved by her family and friends; Helen gave selflessly to her family and her love and kindness will remain with family forever. Her passing brings much grief, yet there is solace in knowing she has been reunited with James, her parents and sisters, and other family, friends, and pets who have passed on to a better place.
