My Grand Aunt Has Passed Away

My grand aunt, Helen Marie Ferguson-Van Horn, passed away Sunday evening, 3 July 2011, in San Antonio, Texas, after a short illness. She was 93 years old. She was preceeded in death by her parents Norman Edward Ferguson and Florence Mabel Weatherby, and her husband, Victor Clark Van Horn. She is survived by her four children: Jerilyn Kay Bailey, Judy Rae Cross, Jack Clark Van Horn, and Janet Faye Howard, their spouses and children.

My favorite memories of Aunt Helen were the many Christmas Eve's we celebrated at her and uncle Vic's house, several family reunions, and all of us celebrating her 75th birthday in San Antonio. She was a fellow family genealogist and a very sweet lady. She will be missed by all who loved her.
