In loving memory of my mother
December 19, 1922 – September 30, 2016

As we celebrate my mother's life, we are very saddened by the loss of her presence in our daily lives. Helen Irene Danrich fought a brave long battle with Alzheimer's, but was very happy and always smiling at the end of her 93 years. 

We will always remember my mother this way.
