Helen was born June 13, 1918 at Alpena, Arkansas, the daughter of Dan and Hazel (Knotts) Robertson.
She was a member of Calvary Baptist Church of Harrison, which she loved dearly. She was such a devoted and very loving mother, granny and great-granny. The void in our hearts will never be the same but we know she's rejoicing in being with Ivan who she had dearly missed.

View, Arkansas; great-grandchildren, Lacey and Clint Howard of Conway, Derek Morrison and Brooklyn Hessenflow and her husband Zach of Harrison, Tyler and Bailee Decker of Harrison, and Carley, Beck, Ross Elle and Lucy Morrow of Mt. View.
