A dear friend to us all here at the League, Helen Smith, passed away on Saturday evening.
Helen was active to the very end and surprised us all by coming with her husband, John, to the Burleson County LIV meeting in October. She was ill, but determined to be there and it did not go unnoticed.
Helen, like our water, was a precious resource of Lee County who taught for years in Giddings I.S.D. She and John, also a teacher, never gave up teaching others as they worked to get their fellow Lee countians and neighbors in Giddings involved in protecting Lee County's most important resource -- the Simsboro aquifer.
We will see you at Helen's funeral to be held this Saturday, December 5, at 11 am at the First Baptist Church, 600 Sunrise Avenue in Giddings.
Our deepest sympathies to John and all of Helen's family, and to all who knew and loved this lovely lady.
