So sad to hear this. Sweet words from Browne's Irish Marketplace.

Helen was always so good to our academy. One of our favorite places to perform was the library and then, after she retired, her home at Grand Court. She would always make sure to have extra popcorn balls and punch for the dancers - winning the hearts of all our students. Through her love and support of our school and the Irish culture she shared in Kansas City, we named our special dance off and traveling trophy, at our feis, after her. Thanks for so many great memories. Our hearts are with her family during this time.
