Mrs. Helen Red was an extraordinary lady whose life influenced many people who will cherish her memory. Born during the time of President Calvin Coolidge, Mrs. Helen saw a lot of history unfold during her life. As a parent, she was an active supporter for many years of the Hazen School Class of 1965, Gail’s class. At the time, we students of that class probably didn’t fully realize the importance of dedicated parental support to our class, but looking back on it now, we realize how important it was for parents and others to dedicate years of their time to help students along their school journey toward graduation. In retrospect, we former students realize that we owe such parents a great debt of gratitude.
Our thoughts and prayers and prayers continue for Gail and her family. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance. With sympathy, Billy and Gail Booth

Gail, I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Helen was a loving and beautiful lady. I will always remember where she sat in church when she was able to come. My prayers are with you, Leah, Dax, and the family.
