Sarah Helen Dunn Worthen, 92, went to her home in Heaven on
February 28, 2018. She was a beloved
wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, and friend. Helen was born on October 12, 1925 in
Greenville, Texas to Robert S. Dunn and Carrie Ellen Barker Dunn.
Helen went to work at First Greenville National Exchange
Bank in 1944 where she met the love of her life, Ray. They were married on January 17, 1948. Helen left the bank a few years later to
start their family. She returned to the
work force in 1965 as Secretary to the Director of Nurses at Citizens General
Hospital. She was quickly promoted and
retired as Human Resources Director in 1990.
In 1998 Helen and Ray left Greenville to move to Tyler to be near their
son Link and their grandchildren. Upon Ray's death in 2008, Helen moved in with
her son Brent in Sugar Land. In 2015 she
moved to Assisted Living in Fredericksburg near her daughter Ginny. From there she moved to Fredericksburg
Nursing and Rehabilitation until her death.
Helen is survived by her children Brent Worthen, Ginny
Wakeland and husband Jim, and Link Worthen; grandchildren Rachel Warner and
husband Louis, and Lydia Worthen; and beloved nieces and nephews. Helen was
preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, four sisters, infant daughter
Shannon Jane, and husband Ray. Helen will always be remembered as an excellent
cook and hostess, a Bible scholar, a Sunday School teacher, but mainly she will
be remembered for her deep love of Jesus Christ and how that was evident in the
way she lived her life and treated others.
She will be deeply missed.
The family will receive friends at Coker-Mathews Funeral
Home on Saturday, March 3, 2018 from 1 P.M. to 3 P.M.
A private family graveside service will be held at East Mount Cemetery.
Helen's children wish to express their appreciation to the
staff at Fredericksburg Nursing and Rehabilitation, Hill Country Memorial
Hospice, and Dr. Matthew Hoermann for the loving care given to their
