Mrs. Nelson was my second grade teacher at Oak Grove Elementary School. She was one of my favorite teachers. I remember how she would teach me math after school and was always kind, patient and encouraging. I am grateful to have had her as a teacher! She will always be remembered!

Helen Nelson touched more lives in a positive way than anyone I have ever known. I was very fortunate that 3 of my 4 boys had her for their second grade teacher. Their participation in "The Delicious Cookie Co." prepared them for very successful careers in business as well as the self esteem they gained in their everyday classroom activities under the loving guidance of Mrs. Nelson. In fact, my 3rd son, Michael married his 2nd grade classmate, Kacie Curtis 22 years ago. I actually think Mrs. Nelson had something to do with it! She was so wise.

Heaven will be an even greater place now that Helen is there. We shall all miss her but we are grateful to have known her and feel very blessed.

With great admiration,
Claire Kendall Bailey

We were blessed that I was able to talk with Helen on her most recent birthday. We have shared the obituary with ours sons, Mark and Brian, who were beneficiaries of her love of teaching and "her" children. For years after they left her classroom her counsel influence our choice of books for them. We were blessed by being able to visit her two years ago. She has continued to be a source and recipient of love for a time that could reasonably have spanned two lifetimes. A void in all of our hearts shall remain.

Helen Nelson was an amazing lady. She always had a way with words to encourage children and she ran a tight ship at Oak Grove. God bless her as she is welcomed into eternal life.
