Helen Ilene (Woods) Yeager
May 03, 2022


Helen I. Yeager, 91, formerly of Glen Campbell, PA passed away on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 and entered a well-deserved eternity with our Lord.

The daughter of John Allen Woods and Edith Mae (Oaks) Woods, she was born on February 16, 1931.

For many years Helen had been employed as a caregiver and aide at local personal care homes and had also worked at the shoe factory in Rossiter, PA.

Helen was the true definition of a dedicated mother, grandmother (Graham) and great grandmother (GG), who put others first with her very generous heart. She was hard working and her strength and endurance during hard times was admirable and will be forever honored by her family.

She enjoyed cooking and baking for her family her whole life and made special foods no one will duplicate, like her infamous ham dinners; baked beans; buns and cinnamon rolls; meatballs; fudge; jello salads and cookie trays. Helen made sure to feed everyone that came through her door.

Helen had a great faith in God and was a wonderful friend to many people throughout the years.

She liked to plant flowers, go shopping, decorate for Christmas and tend to her home, which she kept meticulous. Helen collected porcelain dolls and chicken figurines. She enjoyed her knick-knacks in her home and yard.

Helen is survived by her five children: Walter, Jr. (Brenda); Sheryl (Brad); Karen; Elmer (Jennifer) and Sharon (Mark); fourteen grandchildren and twenty great grandchildren, whom all loved her beyond description.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Walter L. Yeager, Sr.; her father and mother and her brothers and sisters: Clayton, Delores; Ruth; Arthur; Delmont; Erma and John.

We will have to find our way now since our beloved family matriarch is no longer with us. Helen was the light of our lives and will remain in our hearts and memories forever until we are united with her again.
