Helen Peed was the eldest child of Harry Grover Peed and Ethel McMillan. Ethel died in 1932 leaving Helen as the surrogate mother to her three younger siblings. Helen Peed married Harry D. Crews on 29 Dec 1934 in Paris, Illinois. She became the mother of twelve children, eleven having survived child hood. One daughter Helen Marie is buried somewhere in Wyoming sometime around 1944 where Harry was working in the coal mines there. Harry died at the age of 48 leaving Helen to raise her youngest nine children by herself. A better mother we couldn't find, she was the epitome of the word Mother. She managed to keep us all together somehow she made things work and we all survived to become good honest adults and everyone of us honors her memory. We loved you Mama and always will.
