Helen Moore Bell began her enchanting life on Long Island, NY and graduated nursing school in the area. Helen worked in hospitals across the country following each relocation of husband Marvin J. Bell's Air Force assignments, earning her own pilot license along the way. Marvin and Helen stopped moving with his military retirement, settling for good in Naples, FL. Helen continued her nursing career at Naples Community Hospital until her own retirement in 1993.
Mrs. Bell was a mentor and trusted friend to many. A relentless prankster, she never met a chihuahua or garage sale she could resist. She always scrimped on herself while being generous to those around her. She didn't have children, but she certainly raised a lot of girls. Mrs. Bell, HB, Ma Bell, Helen...you've earned your rest. We were all blessed to have known you.
