Helen loved her family and friends. Establishing friendships came easy to her and she kept in contact with many of them through her life. At the Lodge Retirement Center she would assist new residents with directions and encouraged them to come to social activities. She had many friends there including close friend Lois. They shared stories and laughter on a daily basis. They regulerly took the bus to restaurants, Imax and many other locations around Cincinnati! Her other great friend was Wendall. They shared a love of sports including the Bengals, but especially the Reds. She was great at trivia and remembered a lot about the “Big Red Machine”. Helen’s high score in Wii bowling was 216 thanks to Wendall who lined her arm up regularly to hit the mark. Helens’ other great love was sewing and she was good at it. She completed many flower girl dresses, a suit for herself and Earl, her sister Gingers’ mother-of-the-bride dress and many other creations.

  • Tom & Diana Frey
    Relationship: Friend

    She was ALWAYS happy and a great friend. Our families enjoyed many things, including standing up for our neighborhood, fund raisers, and even several camping trips to Brown County, Nashville IN. She was famous for her "racoon stew". Love and prayers to all of her family xoxox

  • Betty, Nancy and Polly Raines
    Relationship: Friends

    Thought of fond memories of you growing up. You were a great help and good friend. Thinking of You Ann and Tom.

  • Tom Enghauser (the other one)
    Relationship: 3rd Cousin To Earl

    Just wanted to express, how grateful I am, that I met Helen and Earl some years ago and exchanged information on the Enghauser Genealogy. They were always so nice and seemed interested in the pursuit even though I seemed to come out of no where. The reunion In Lebanon was I think mainly planned by them and was interesting to meet all the cousins etc. My deepest sympathy, and I know they will have a special place in heaven, for leading such an exemplary life. Best Wishes, Tom tenghauser@zoomtown.com
