  1. To the Wilson and Zeh Families,

    My sincere sympathy to each of you; you have lost a treasure for sure! As my Mom (Christiana McGrath) always loved her visits with her Wampum cousins, so did I. I have many wonderful memories of playing with Janice McMichael and Janie Zeh.

    I visited with Helen and Bill at my Mom’s funeral back in 2007. I so enjoyed seeing them that day!

    Again, my utmost sympathy to each of you. Please know that my husband and I will make a contribution to the Wampum Presbyterian Church in the very near future.
    Love to all,
    Alice McGrath Campbell

  2. It is with deepest sadness that we just learned of Helen’s passing. We moved into our new home two years ago and within 30 minutes of arriving with the truck Helen and Bill stopped in to welcome us. Though we didn’t visit much I always enjoyed when we did. They couldn’t be more pleasant.
    Our deepest condolences to the Wilson and Zeh families. Our hearts go out to you all.
