  1. Tannis MacFarlane-Kelly :

    Dear Kelly, Jackie, Robbie & Mark,
    My deepest sympathies to your entire family upon Helen’s passing. I remember rooming with her in Toronto for Mary Kay Seminar in the middle ’90’s and what a sweet time we had! She was always the poised, polished, professional and welcomed you with open arms at whatever event you would see her at! I learned a lot from her, but mostly the graceful way that she made you always feel important and special. Thanks for sharing her with me (with all of us in Mary Kay)! We hope that your many good memories will buoy you up during this difficult time. May God bless you all!

    Helen and myself shared a room at one of our Seminars. She was one of the most go-give women, and I enjoyed our time together at various Mary Kay functions. My condolences to your family. Please know that there are many Directors in Mary Kay who feel as I do, and I am certain that her team members shared those feelings as well. She will be missed by her Mary Kay family too. God Bless.

    So very sorry to Helen’s family for your loss. Helen was my lovely Mary Kay director when I joined Mary Kay 18 years ago. She was so lovely and had a profound and positive impact on my life. I am richer for having known her. She always talked about her beautiful children and grand children and was so very proud of every one of them. I am sure she is deeply missed.
    With sincere condolences,
    Tricia Barker (formerly Dalton)
