Helen retired from Duke Hospital with over 30 years of service as an anesthesia nurse.  She loved her work and often shared many stories of her anesthesia days.

She loved her dog Barney, that she rescued, and all the many cats that she and Lynn took care of during the winter months, that ended up taking up permanent residence with them.  She also loved to cook and so loved her Duke Blue Devils.
