Helen Louise Byndon (Staples), affectionately nicknamed "honey" by her father, was the eldest daughter of the late Nathan and Elizabeth Staples. She was born May 23, 1924, in Bloomfield, West Virginia. Helen spent a good portion of her life in West Virginia until the family relocated to Michigan after their father took on a pastoral role at a church in Monroe, MI. In the early 1950's Helen moved to Cincinnati, OH where she eventually met her husband, Albert Byndon Sr.
Helen was a devoted and loving mother to her eight children and a doting grandmother to her ten grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren. She was also a nurturing mother figure to so many people whose lives she touched over the course of her life. A devout Christian, Helen joined Bond Hill Presbyterian church in 1974 where she remained a member until her death. Helen could be described as a quiet youth, however, as she grew and blossomed, and if she really knew you, Helen could also be a very vibrant person who could make you laugh. Her favorite color was orange and she loved snacking on Reese cups and anything with peaches in it. Her favorite pastime was watching the Game Show Network, particularly Family Feud where she would watch one of her favorite celebrities-Steve Harvey. Helen was also an avid sports fan as she would watch every sport that came on television from basketball to gymnastics. Whether you were laughing or smiling, spending time with Helen was always joyful and whether she was doing her happy dance or just sharing a memorable moment with you, time with her was always unforgettable. Helen quietly departed this life in the presence of her family on Wednesday, July 27, 2022 at Drake Hospital in Cincinnati, OH.
Preceded in death by her parents, Rev. Nathaniel and Elizabeth Staples; Husband Albert Byndon Sr.; her sisters Margaret Staples, Ruby Jackson and Sylvia Kirby; her brothers, Nathaniel "Sonny" Staples, Charles Edward Staples and Jim Staples; and her great-grandson, Day'Veon Dockery.
