I didn’t know Helen well as I lived in California but she was married to my dad‘s brother and we spent time there at her home as my grandpa Smathers was on his deathbed there it was a hard time for all of us. But I remember what a great cook she was I remember her cutting out Homemade noodles and I don’t remember ever having any sense. Since then I grew close to Paul Junior I want to give my love to the family ❤️

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. “Mom Owens” was one of the greatest people I have ever met. She was there for all of her kids whenever she was needed. I was fortunate to see her on my last Ohio trip. I am a better person for knowing her and will remember her always.
