Remembering Helen Gloor

Dear Editor:

On Jan. 18 we unexpectedly lost a very special friend, Helen Gloor. Helen was known for her vibrant energy, sense of humor and creative talents.

She had enthusiasm for the outdoors, especially skiing with the “Pioneer Women” (when the Bird Perchers line up, her spot will be empty). For years she skated competitively with the Mother Puckers hockey team, of which she was a founding member. She was an avid sailor, winning races even last summer.

Creatively, she had so many artistic talents: sewing, painting, designing. Many of her friends sport her handcrafted hats, noseguards and bags, and Helen’s watercolors hang in the homes of many friends. She had too much energy to sit still, so she was constantly making things or helping friends with framing, matting or other projects.

Helen loved designing houses and constantly improving them. One of her favorite gifts was a jigsaw that she delightedly used to make gingerbread trim for her Victorian house in Sandpoint, Idaho.

She leaves behind so many friends who were privileged to share her enthusiasm and passion for living.

Friends of Helen Gloor
