to the Helfer family, Your parents were amazing people. I had the pleasure of working with both of them at MSU. Dr. Helfer took care of my daughter and I worked with your mom in CME. Keep their memories close.

We'll remember our weekly dinners, of which Mary Edna was a special part.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.

Based upon Numbers - 6:24-26

The best memories are of Thanksgiving dinners at her home in East Lansing. She did every thing with grace, joy and humor. A privilege to have called her my friend. Love and prayers to her family.

Mary will always be a special person to us. Many fond memories from our Bramble Drive neighborhood. She and Ray were especially great friends in helping us cope with the death of our son Greg. We will always be gratefull to her for that time. Unfortunately, she then had to grieve the loss of her own son, Jeff. We will certainly miss her and remember her fondly. Pat and Roz
