Born on October 20, 1934, in Maze, Juniata County, she was a daughter of the late John Allen and Sarah Elizabeth (Lauver) Lindsey. On September 9 1953, she married her late husband, Lenus I.

Helen was a 1952 graduate of Thompsontown High School and a member of the Turkey Valley United Methodist Church, Millerstown.
She was a former co-owner, with her family, of Troup Brothers and Benner Store in Seven Stars and was employed as a real estate agent, retiring from Century 21 Above and Beyond in Mifflintown.
In earlier life, she was an avid tennis player and enjoyed traveling with her late husband, putting puzzles together, and gardening; however, her greatest joy came from spending time with her family.
