  • Notes 
    • The fourth of five children, Helene was born on Texas Independence Day. The University of Texas cannon was booming, and the attending physician said to her parents, “Sounds like the announcement of the birth of a princess!” Helene graduated from Austin Public Schools and from the University of Texas with a B.S. degree. While there, her talent in The Danse resulted in a membership in Orchesis, the interpretive dance group. The highlight of the group was performing on the stage of Hogg Auditorium on the university’s campus. Besides the Danse, she loved horses, and taught women and children classes in swimming, tennis and exercise. Helene, a devoted homemaker was dedicated to her church and community as well. She enjoyed art and music. She volunteered with the San Jacinto Volunteer Nurses Corps, had membership in Baytown Music Study Club and taught Sunday School at First Presbyterian Church. She was enriched by James’ love of music as well as their many friends. [10]
