The world was blessed with Helen Wilson Jeffries Dennison on May 14, 1927; and Heaven rejoiced when she was taken Home at the age of 83 on November 30, 2010. She was welcomed into eternal peace by her mother and father; two brothers: Marvin and Raymond Wilson; husbands Howard Jeffries and James Willard Dennison; and many friends and family. She was born in Melcher, Iowa to George and Mary (Beeler) Wilson where she grew up, married, raised a family, and became an icon; known for her immense love of life, and a vast, unconditional love of others. During her lifetime, she fulfilled many roles: devoted daughter; wonderful wife; caring mother; adoring sister 'Sissy'; amazing aunt; fun-loving cousin; beloved grandmother; proud great grandmother; and devoted friend. She brought innumerable smiles and laughter to everyone she touched, and took great pride and joy in her family. She is survived by 5 children, all of whom adore her: Jacque (Mike) Leonard of Carrollton, Texas, Trudy (Paul) Gaub of Eden Prairie, Minnesota; Kathy (Dave) Bauer of Indianola, Iowa, David Jeffries of Melcher-Dallas, Iowa; and Dawn (Joe) Willging of Iowa City, Iowa. She was the proud grandmother of 15 grandchildren and delighted in being the great grandmother of 17. She was loved beyond measure by her brothers: Jim (Sharon) Wilson of Clive, Iowa, Larry (Linda) Wilson of Melcher-Dallas, Iowa, and Ron (Cathy) Wilson of Knoxville, Iowa. She is also survived by sister-in-laws: Judy Wilson, Martha Wilson, and Della Mae (Gene) Tassler; and a special friend Dick Mason.
