Brady, Helen Louise
Helen Louise Brady, 91 of Phoenix, went to be with her Lord Jesus on July 13, 2013. Our sweet Mimi was born in Hector, Arkansas on December 31, 1921. She was the daughter of Allen Wilburn Bullock and Ruth Ann Bullock. The youngest child of thirteen, she was raised in a faithful Christian home, blessed with strong family ties, both of which Helen was deeply proud. She graduated from Hector High School, Arkansas State Teachers College, Conway and Arkansas Polytechnic College, Russellville, Arkansas. After her marriage to her beloved husband, Lon Ellis Brady of Dewitt Arkansas, the couple moved to Phoenix in 1956. She taught first grade for thirty-three years in the Wilson School District of Phoenix, and was a lifetime member of the National Teachers Association and Retired Teachers Association. She graduated with a Masters of Education from Arizona State University. Helen was an active member of Central Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School classes, sang in the choir, serving her Lord within that beloved fellowship for decades. Until her fight with Alzheimer's in her later years, she also attended The Church at Arrowhead, Glendale. She is preceded in death by Lon, sisters Lola Llewellyn, Lottie DuVall, Scottie Hill, Sybil Wright, Lillian Bullock, Vivian Danley, Elizabeth Caudle, Kathryn Johnson, Anna Churchill; brothers Raymond Bullock and Thomas Bullock.

Mimi was highly treasured by her grandsons. She nurtured them with knowledge, humor, love and a deep faith that profoundly impacted their lives. A celebration of the joyful life of our precious mother, grandmother and great grandmother will be held at First United Methodist Church 5510 N. Central Ave. Phoenix AZ on Friday, July 19, 2013, at 10:00 am. Mimi, one day soon we will join you to worship in the presence of our glorious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, whose love you reflected, and who you passionately followed. Together we will experience the wonders He has provided for us through our faith and His marvelous grace, in heaven. Until that time, your love will live forever in our lives. We will deeply miss you. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Music Ministry of First United Methodist Church, 5510 N. Central Ave. Phoenix AZ.
