Helen Marie McFatridge
11/17/1954 - 4/18/2021

 

Helen Marie Hare McFatridge, 66, of Greenville, Texas, passed away on Sunday, April 18, 2021, at her home that she shared with her husband and pets.  A graveside memorial service will be held on Sunday, April 25, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at Restland Cemetery in Roxton, Texas.  Visitation will be held on Saturday, April 24, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Coker-Mathews Funeral Home.

Helen was born November 17, 1954 in Independence, Kansas to Raymond and Anna Merrit Hare. She married Bob McFatridge on November 6, 1992 in Richardson, Texas.  She worked as an electrical assembly technician for over thirty years.

Helen was a doting mother and devoted wife.  Her faith in God was the foundation for all of her decisions and actions in life, and she is surely singing amongst the angels now. Helenís generous temperament was recognized by all those that benefited from her caring presence, and her greatest asset was her willingness to love with a full heart. She prioritized family and time spent together above all material possessions, and entering her home always meant receiving a good meal and leaving with a comforted spirit. Those that she held dear can attest to the deep love that existed in her marriage, a union that was characterized by lots of laughter, loads of loyalty, and a shared passion for the power of rock-n-roll music.

She is survived by her husband, Bob McFatridge of Greenville; daughters, Alyssa Wood and husband, Paul, of Richardson, Lacey Marshall and husband, Roger, of Garland, Bryanna Wegscheid and husband, Christopher, of La Belle, Florida; mother-in-law, Lillie McFatridge of Mt. Pleasant; brother, Jim Hare and wife, Chris of Independence, Kansas; sisters, Judy Wilson of Independence, Kansas, Florence McLaughlin and husband, Melvin, of Wellsville, Kansas, Sharon Lewis and husband, Sonny, of Prosper; sisters-in-law, Carolyn Hare of Independence, Kansas, Barbara Bruechner and husband, Eric, of Mt. Pleasant; granddaughters, Everett Audrey Wood and soon to arrive, Emory Anna Marshall; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Betty Cook and husband, Gene, Janice Hare; and brother, Kenzel Hare.
