Patricia "Gail" Helm Obituary
Helm Patricia "Gail" Helm, age 84, of Blacklick, Ohio, passed away peacefully on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017 at her residence. Those familiar with Gail knew the warm comfort of a full belly and the resolve of careless laughter. It was her generosity that made her a great mother, and her open doors that made her a saint. Though her guidance and compassion will be missed, her legacy continues through the strength of her loving family. She was born on October 12, 1932 in Columbus, Ohio to the late Edward and Josephine (Carr) Huffman, and was a graduate of St. Joseph Academy. Gail was a member of St. Pius X Catholic Church, the Rosary Altar Society, and the Allied Florist Association. She nurtured a career in the floral industry for more than 50 years and was a preschool teacher at Messiah Christian Preschool. In addition to her parents, Gail was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 55 years, Donald A. Helm, and brothers-in-law Pete Taylor and Walter Helm. She was a loving mother of seven children, Debbie Liffick, Julie (Dan) Schneider, Christine (John) Shanks, Patrick (Melodie) Helm, Laurie (Bob) Benintendi, Holly (Erik) High, and Judy Helm. Also left to cherish her memory are 13 grandchildren; two and 1/2 great-grandchildren; brother, Guy (Karen) Lawler; sister, Sylvia Taylor; sister-in-law, Jeanne Helm; nieces, nephews, other relatives and dear, lifelong friends.
