Farewell from her friends at Hoxworth

It was with great sadness and tears that the news of her passing was shared amongst Helen’s friends at Hoxworth. As the Blood Drive Coordinator for St. Henry, Helen took personal responsibility and joy in ensuring each blood drive was able to save as many lives as possible, and her impact in countless lives is silently at work throughout our Region. Her care for her community, her pride and love in her children and grandchildren, and the wealth of experience her life brought to every conversation was an honor to be able to experience. We are all richer and better for having know her. We grieve with you, and will hold you in our thoughts during this time of loss.
With deepest sympathy,

Saundra Oprea, Katie Glahn, Chris McMullen & Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati
