Helen "Sam" (Age 82)

Passed away Thursday, January 20, 2011 in Spokane Valley WA. Helen was a wonderful person who felt strangers were just friends she hadn't met. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. Helen had many things she was passionate about but two of the main ones were antiques and gardening (damn those weeds). An outdoors person she loved the water in summer and snowmobiling in winter. Sam also supported her husband Darrell's love of motorcycles from taking tickets to running the concession stand. Friends and family gatherings were extremely important and her pies were always a hit (lemon meringue and apple). She was deeply loved and will be missed. Helen is survived by her son Roger Bang; daughters Chris (Ed) Strozyk and Tami Chiesa; brothers Dick and Emer Butt; sister Gevie Thompson; grandchildren Patrick R. Bang, Sarah Louise Bang, Shannon (Sarah Chickering) Strozyk, Eric (Courtney) Strozyk, Amelia Francesca Chiesa and Michael Keith Chiesa; great-grandchildren Haleyna Grace Chiesa and Fiona Belle Strozyk; and beloved dogs Katie and Kinsey. Sam was preceded in death by her husband of 20 years Darrell Triber. Memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at Hennessey Valley Funeral Home, 1315 N. Pines Rd.
