Countless stories have been written about the power of love. Itâ€™s love that conquers, love that heals, and love that triumphs. Love was the narrative of Helen M. Overstreetâ€™s story. When she passed away on Sept. 25, 2016, she left this world knowing that she was soon reuniting with the love of her life, Berry Overstreet, who passed away just a few months earlier. Throughout her life, Helen was a symbol of unconditional love. She greeted everyone with hospitality and genuine warmth, and she did so expecting no recognition. But for her family, her love for them was her pride. She cherished the opportunity to endlessly give of her time, her advice or even just a seat at her table. Itâ€™s her family who will miss her warmth the most. Helen leaves behind a family who is better because of her love for them: Her daughter, Teresa Norcross and her husband David; her granddaughter Megan Norcross; her granddaughter Ashley Tomlin and her husband Caleb; her great grandchildren Owen and Nora Tomlin; her sisters Mary Lou Gardner (and husband Thomas Gardner, Jr.) and Evelyn Overstreet; her brother William McGuire (and wife Catherine McGuire); and her sister-in-law Peggy McGuire. Helen was loved and cared for by so many. The family would like to extend special gratitude to her caregivers, Rachel, Constance and Sylvia, as well as Sandie and Marcie from Amedysis Hospice. Helen will be laid to rest at Thaxton Baptist Church Cemetery at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2016. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make a donation to the Thaxton Baptist Church Building Fund. Arrangements by Burch-Messier Funeral Home, Bedford, 540-586-7360.
