Helen Mae Parker, 91, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 24, 2022 at Heritage House in New Castle, IN. Helen was born April 12, 1931 to George R. and Mable B. Parker in New Castle. She was a graduate of New Castle Chrysler High School. She was a proud mother to Shirley May and Michael Wayne. Helen worked for many years as a nurses’ assistant at both Heritage House and Henry County Hospital. She took great pride in her work, and she always showed up with the most crisp, white uniform and neatly polished shoes. Helen was a masterful homemaker, always keeping everything extremely neat and tidy. She was a member of the First United Methodist Church in New Castle and greatly enjoyed her Sunday School group. She loved watching and discussing sports, especially the Indianapolis Colts and the Indiana Pacers.

Helen was preceeded in death by her parents, daughter Shirley May Parker Boling, brother George R. Parker Jr., and sisters Barbara Ausenbaugh, Betty Walters, and Nancy Weesner.
A memorial service for Helen will be held and announced at a later date.
