Helen Strong

Helen Strong/Helen Capels/Helen Nordin 1940-2017.

On December 12, 2017 Helen Strong passed peacefully in Sarasota, FL. She attended Highland High School in Albuquerque in the 1950's and then UNM after that. She was a loving mother, sister and grandmother. She loved visiting Ghost Ranch and managed to amass a large collection of vintage glass insulators and Nambe Ware before it became so famous. She spent many a summer day at the Menaul Aquatic Club with her family. At Thanksgiving she made the most delicious turkey in a brown paper grocery bag that one could ever hope to consume. She was sweet, funny, and will be missed.

She is survived by her daughters Karen Miller (McKinney,Texas) and Kathy Rebar (Sarasota, Florida), as well as her son Chris Capels (Walnut Creek, California).
