SHARE Obituary: Helen Lois McQueen Vincent

After living a long and wonderful life, our beloved mother, grandmother, and sister passed away Monday, January 21, 2002, at Park Lane Manor.

Helen, the third of nine children, was born March 22, 1908, to Rebecca Nielsen McQueen and Edward Liberty McQueen in Salt Lake City. She was a devoted wife to Clement Leo Vincent, who preceded her in death. For 37 years, Helen worked as an executive secretary for Steiner American Corporation, loving her work and her many friends there. She was known as an expert needle woman, crocheting beautiful articles for her daughter, grandchildren, and great-grand-children. She embroidered exquisite quilts and tablecloths and needle pointed elaborate pictures as gifts for those she loved. She volunteered in the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and at Senior Citizens, where she joined her brothers and sister in weekly activities. She loved traveling and visiting her grandchildren and great-grand-children. She was a loving and generous person and will be greatly missed. Her devotion to her friends and family continues to touch our lives.

She is survived by one daughter Lorraine Lois (Dwaine Arthur) Nielson; four grandchildren, Linda Ann (Gilbert) Eppich, Gerald Arthur (Margaret Ann) Nielson, David Duane Nielson, and Laureen Lois (Steve) Carlson; 11 great-grandchildren; and four great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by a brother, Edward McQueen.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28, 2002 at the Holladay Cottonwood Mortuary, 4670 So. Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, with a viewing one hour prior to the service. Interment, Mount Olivet Cemetery.

We wish to thank Park Lane Manor for their kind and loving care of our mother, grandmother, and sister.
