She was born December 22, 1930, in Ardmore Oklahoma, to Charles Newton Martin and May Belle Christian. She was a very successful accountant who finally decided to retire at the age of 80. Helen loved gardening, tending her cactus garden, and just sitting in the sun loving life. She sure knew how to throw a party and loved having huge gatherings.

She will forever be missed and treasured.
