HELEN RYANCHIPMAN

Ryan-Chipman Nov 19, 1954 - July 12, 2014 EULESS, TX Helen Mary Ryan-Chipman, 59, passed away peacefully on July 12, 2014, in Euless, TX after a brief illness. She was born on November 19, 1954, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Helen enjoyed all types of entertainment, especially music and dancing. She had an incredible sense of humor, making us laugh to tears with her colorful descriptions and stories. Helen attended the University of Minnesota and had an amazing memory with perfect recall of events. Helen worked for Dillard's for over 25 years and was an award-winning salesperson in women's fashion. She was preceded in death by her father, Martin C. Ryan. Helen leaves behind her mother, Audra Ryan; her sister, Mary Lou Ryan; aunts, Betty McPherson and Lila McPherson; and numerous cousins, friends and co-workers. "Sweet and Beautiful" is how she was described by those who knew her. Our time with her was cut too short. We have our great memories and our faith in God that she is now in comfort and has perfect happiness in joining our departed family members. We will miss you always. Rest well until we are together again. The family will celebrate Helen's life with a private Mass in her memory at Christ the King Church.
