In Memory of Helen Baldwin

On March 5th my Mother, Helen Baldwin, passed away in her sleep. She lived a full and rich 88 years. What she often called her "wonderful life" included much self-sacrifice for others that she learned from her parents example in depression-era Bay City, MI where the family stayed active in their community's church, school and government. She took to heart her fathers advice to his four daughters that being involved in community work was the responsibility of every citizen.
