FRANKLIN, Ind. — Helen B. Gifford Armour, 92, formerly of Unadilla, passed away on Sunday, July, 28, 2013, at Morning Pointe, The Lantern Alzheimer’s Memory Care Center, Franklin, Ind.

Helen was born on April 26, 1921, in Masonville, the daughter of Austin and Bertha (Whitman) Gifford. She married William (Bill) Armour in September 1941.

Helen was a dairy farm wife and also worked at the Sidney Federal Credit Union and eventually for SUNY Oneonta.

She relocated from her home in Unadilla Center to Franklin, Ind., in 2010, and was a resident of Morning Pointe.

Helen enjoyed tending her flower beds and watching the birds, especially blue birds, who attended her feeders. She loved the countryside and hills and often drove the country ways and roads for enjoyment. She especially loved watching the spectacular sunsets she could view from her Unadilla home and playing the piano and organ.

Helen was a member of the Unadilla Grange and the Unadilla Friends Meeting (Church) in Rogers Hollow.

Helen is survived by her children, Theodore (Ted) Armour and his wife, Susan Moger of Edgewater, Md., Bruce Armour and his wife, Cindy of Franklin, Ind., Jayne Morenus of Naples, Fla.; daughter-in-law, Tigi Armour of Unadilla; her sisters, Savalla (Sally) Howland of Masonville, and Zilpha (Zip) Casey of Greene; as well as many grandchildren; and great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her husband, Bill; and son, Larry Armour.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Unadilla Friends Meeting or the Alzheimer’s Association, in Helen’s memory.

A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.

Flinn & Maguire Funeral Home in Franklin is handling arrangements.
