  8. Helen’s smile when she greeted you at Talbot st door is something I will always remember. Her love of magazines, cats, nice clothes, good food and Christmas left it’s mark on all who worked with her over the years. The little whistle we shared always showed me how happy she was feeling.
    Talbot st has lost another wonderful character and my sympathy goes out to the staff and her family.
    RIP Helen

  15. Like so many others who had the privilege of supporting Helen, I have fond memories of her love of a good joke, hearing her whistle when she was happy, her love of cats and music, and especially her stubbornness when changing the photo board to have her favourite staff and activities displayed. She was a person who knew what she wanted. Deepest sympathy to Helen’s housemates and staff at Talbot St and to Andrew and family. Rest in peace Helen 🐈
