Helen persevered among many obstacles studying, taking exams, and always maintaining a positive demeanor. Her pioneering stance took hold and she rose in position, until the pinnacle was hers. She was the only female supervisor in Area Logisitics until that time. She retired in 1986 after almost 30 (thirty) years of service. Helen was a member of the Everett Garden Club & Everett Senior Arts & Crafts Association.
