Helenbrook, Marion  
Marion L. Helenbrook, 95, of Bradford, passed away on Friday (Oct. 31, 2014) at her niece's home in Sayre. She was born on Oct. 2, 1919 in Bradford Township on the Helenbrook Farm. She was the daughter of the late Ralph J. and Bessie Lucinda Jones Helenbrook. Marion attended Custer City School for Grades 1 through 8 and she graduated from Bradford Area High School in 1937 as valedictorian. While attending high school she drove her Model T to school daily. Immediately after graduation, she was recommended by the principal to a local law firm. She was employed by Gallup, Potter and Gallup Law Firm for two years. Their offices were located in the Hooker Fulton Building on Main Street, Bradford. She was then recommended to Judge Charles G. Hubbard who was in need of a secretary. This began her career at the McKean County Courthouse in Smethport. She worked in the Judge's office as both secretary and court reporter. She remembered the 1940 morning she received the phone call that the Courthouse was on fire and she immediately drove to Smethport to stand with others at the tragedy. While her career began with Judge Hubbard, it continued under Judge Glenn E. Mencer who served as judge for many years. When Judge Mencer received his appointment to the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court as one of the founding judges, he maintained a home office in his home county and Marion was the administrator. When Judge Mencer was appointed by President Ronald Reagan as United States District Judge for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Marion retired but continued to visit the courthouse as she obtained a Notary Public Commission and took sworn statements for filing in the Prothonotary's Office. Marion attended Custer City Church for several years and visited often in her lifetime. Her membership began in the Hill Memorial United Methodist Church in Bradford when it was an Evangelical United Brethren congregation and she remained an active member there after the merger which created the United Methodist Church across the country in 1968. A celebration of the merger was held at Hill Memorial in which Marion participated. In her church life, Marion was a member of the choir, the Fellowship Class and the United Methodist Women. She was active on a number of committees and held a number of responsible positions for the Church through the years. She taught a variety of classes including Bible Studies, the Junior High School Student class and she was instrumental in forming the original Fellowship Class for those post High School. She was deeply loved by family and friends. She has been described as "smart" and "sweet" but also as "elegant" as people remember her noticeable presence in both the Bradford and Smethport communities. One of her lifetime goals was to visit every named Atlantic Beach on the East Coast of the United States; she accomplished this goal. She also traveled to Israel; as one of the highlights of her vacation experiences which included trips to Egypt, England, Sweden and Denmark; she was able to experience the Pyramids and the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen harbor. Seeing the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem was always the moment she selected to call the highlight of her travels. She is survived by her only niece, Rev. Dianne Marion Bentley, DMin cndt. and her nephew-in-law, Chris Bentley both of South Waverly; grandniece, Lucinda (Rick) Gumaer, two grandnephews; Andrew (Holly) Glover and Cody Bentley; great grandnieces and grandnephews; Paige Gumaer, Logan Gumaer, Emmeline Glover and another precious child who will arrive in November. In addition to her parents she was also preceded in death by two brothers, Harold, who passed away in infancy and Harris who was a prominent local businessman who repaired oil wells for local producers for many years; and her sister-in-law, Virginia. Visitation will be held on Saturday at the Mascho Funeral Home Inc. from 11 a.m. to noon, with a funeral service to immediately follow with the Rev. Jay Tennies, pastor of the Hill Memorial United Methodist Church, officiating. Burial and committal services will be in Degolia Cemetery. Memorial contributions in her name can be made to the Hill Memorial United Methodist Church, 44 Kennedy St., Bradford, PA  16701. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care of the Mascho Funeral Home Inc. Online Condolences can be expressed at www.maschofuneral.com
