"The Best Mom Ever"|
Helen was an accomplished artist, champion dance skater, seamstress, bridge player, and ballroom dancer. Her biggest passion was tennis with bookshelves filled with trophies. She was a true champion in everything she did with a quick wit to boot.
She is survived by her sons, Clint Burns and Randy Burns; daughter, Deborah Brit Kirtland; granddaughter, Heidi Burns; great-grandson, Kayahi Burns; sister-in-law, Dorothea Catherine Burns Beckett; and sweetheart, Cecil Norwood.
Special thanks to Cecil for taking such loving care of our mother all these years. He is part of our family and we feel his grief in the loss of his "Sweetie."
Helen will be greatly missed and loved and will live in our hearts forever.
