June 12, 1931 - February 28, 2022
Helen Harding was Born June 12, 1931 in Oakhurst, Texas to John & Lela Skeen and met Jesus on February 28, 2022. She grew up with her two sisters Dorothy and Marjorie and three brothers, Bud, Roy and Floyd. She was a loving and devoted wife to her late husband Sonny Harding, an amazing Mom to her three children, Trisha, Kay and Danny, Aunt to numerous nieces and nephews and Best Mamaw Ever to eight Grandchildren and ten Great Grandchildren. She loved them all and cherished every minute she spent with them. Her family was her life and she instilled a life of love and values to continue on for generations to come. Helen and Sonny moved from Houston to Huntsville in 1972. They had a large garden that produced an abundance of vegetables that they were proud of and shared with family and friends. In fact, there were so many different types of peas and pea shelling got really old that they purchased a "Pea Sheller" to help Helen out. Helen canned all types of vegetables and kept her children's pantry full. Country living was the best and they were Blessed with many friends. When Sonny passed away Helen decided to go to work for the first time after being a home maker and Best Mom ever. She went to work at Kerr's Department Store where she enjoyed helping and visiting with all the customers. One day she was approached by a gentleman that she had helped many times and he suggested she go to Walker County Courthouse and mention his name and apply for a job. She was so excited when she got the call to work in the County Clerk's office and loved every minute of her time there. After working there several years, another opportunity to work at Walker County Title came up. Helen loved working at the Title Company where she searched Court Records and scanned the plats so they would mirror the County Records. She would also travel to San Jacinto County to file records for the Title Company. Helen loved her job and worked hard to get the job done. Helen had a beautiful and caring spirit with a big, bright smile that everyone noticed. She looked for the goodness in everyone she met. She was very Blessed to have an abundance of friends and treasured each and every one of them. You know who you are and you know that she loved you dearly! Helen was a great listener and welcomed her friends calls to share in their daily ventures. She touched the lives of those who met her and left behind the memories of love and laughter. Helen was a faithful member of Second Baptist Church in Huntsville and attended regularly until her health declined. She loved her Church and Church family and treasured the days of sitting on her special bench with friends. She was a life time member of the Eastern Stars in Huntsville and Park Place. After a fall in her home that required surgery, she moved to Livingston to live with her daughter Trisha and son-in-law Pat. She made many new friends, went on golf cart rides, played canasta and spite and malice with her grandson and friends, had monthly lunch with the ladies and watched the sunset and thanked the Lord for the beauty on the lake. Bagging items for the care packages sent out by F.A.I.T.H. Military Support was one of her favorite past times. She loved supporting the Troops and showing all of us that she could still contribute and show her Love for America and Our Heroes even though she wasn't as strong as she used to be. For her 90th birthday a letter with her picture bagging drink mixes was included in the 120 monthly care packages mailed out by F.A.I.T.H. She received several notes back from our brave Heroes in Africa & Kuwait wishing her a Belated Happy Birthday and thanking her for the help. These kind gestures warmed her heart and brought the biggest smile to her face. As usual, she wanted to send them a Thank You note for Thanking her which was so typical of her. Christmas 2021 was extra special to Helen since she was able to return to her home in Huntsville and celebrate the Birth of Christ with her family, a Christmas she had dreamed of and one we will never forget. While we will miss Helen dearly here on earth, we will never forget her. We will all cherish the memories we shared with her and hold on to the love she showed us. Helen leaves behind a Legacy of Love; Love for Life, Love for Her Family but most of all Love for Our Lord and Savior! She will leave a huge hole in our hearts but we are all comforted knowing that she is now Rejoicing with Our Lord and all the Loved Ones that have gone before her. You were one in a million and we were all Blessed with the time we shared with you. Visitation will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2022 at Sam Houston Memorial Funeral Home at 1:00 p.m., with services celebrating Helen Harding's life at 2:00 p.m. She will be laid to rest at Bath Cemetery.
