Helen Ethel Willis, 93, of Bellevue, passed away, October 18, 2013 at Christian Elder Care AFC.

She was born August 9, 1920, the daughter of Glen and Maude (Lawton) Rarick in Tekonsha, Michigan.

Helen attended Springfield Junior High and graduated from La Mar Beauty Academy.  She worked in the packaging department at Kellogg's for 30 ½ years until retiring.

She was preceded in death by her husband, George (Ed) W. Willis; her son, David; her parents; sister, Hazel; brother, Clarence Rarick and half-brother, William Green.  Helen is survived by her son, Richard (Betty) Willis of Bellevue; five grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
