Helen was a good wife and mother who raised her family with Wayne primarily in Richardson, Texas. She also worked as a secretary and later as a travel agent. After Wayne died in 1979 in California, she moved back to Richardson where she bought her first home as a single woman. She became reacquainted with a family friend, Homer Holland. They were married in 1987 and split time between “the ranch” in Royse City and her home in Richardson. Helen enjoyed traveling, playing the slot machines in Vegas and Bossier City, Tai Chi at the Senior Center, and spending time with family. She will be remembered for her sense of humor, her kindness, her pride in her Polish heritage, her mischievous smile, and her love of all things chocolate.
