Long time Parke County resident, Mrs. Warren (Helen J. Boyd) Graham peacefully passed
away at Wesley Manor in Frankfort, Indiana on Wednesday June 5, 2019.
Helen was born in Vermillion County, Indiana to Ralph W. and Ruth J. (Patterson) Boyd
on August 27, 1925. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother John R.
Boyd and her husband, Michael Warren Graham. A brother, David C. Boyd survives; as
well as her children, Mike (Michael Ranke), Debby (Ken Simpson), Bob (Pat) and Judy
(Linda Pickett); grandsons, Rob & Russ, as well as two boys she thought of as her
grandsons, Garrett & Owen Welch. She cherished several great grandchildren, nieces &
nephews.
Helen graduated from Montezuma High School in 1944. Helen was very active in the
Happy Hours Home Economics Club, a leader in Girl Scouts, as well as serving on the
Covered Bridge Girl Scout Council Board of Directors for many years. She was also very
involved as a long-time member of the Rockville United Methodist Church serving in
many roles over the years. She was Past Worthy Matron and a very active member of
the Rockville Chapter of the Order of Eastern Star, until it was dissolved.
Helen kept the books for Mike’s Plumbing Shop (family business), a homemaker and
later fulfilled her long-time goal of teaching by working at the Rockville Elementary
School as a Title One Teaching Assistant for many years. She loved assisting children
with their reading and math skills. Retiring was very difficult for her, but she found
fulfillment by continuing to assist people through the Parke Adult Tutoring Service and
served on the Board of the Tri-County Literacy Program.
Helen loved being a part of the Parke County Fair, assisting with setup & adult judging
of various classes. She especially enjoyed miniature flower arranging and had quite a
talent for it.
The family wishes to thank all of the nurses, aides and staff at Wesley Manor in Frankfort
for their outstanding service over the years. They have become family and we will
always be grateful to them.
Visitation will be held on Sunday, June 9, 2019 from 3 p.m. till 6 p.m. at Fisher Family
Funeral Services in Sheridan, IN. A Memorial Service and Interment will be held in
Rockville, IN at Memory Garden Cemetery on June 22, 2019 at 2 p.m.
