Helen Beatrice Goble Brown left this world December 28th from natural causes having lived ninety-one years. She leaves behind her oldest son Michael Steven and middle son Robert Keith, and Michael’s son, Benjamin Adam. Helen was predeceased by her husband, Herbert Hoover in 1999 and her youngest son, Richard Dale in 2017.
Helen chose to be a stay-at-home mother raising her three sons to be worthy members of society. She began a second career at United Virginia Bank in 1969 as a PBX switchboard operator. Before retiring in 1997 from what became SunTrust Bank she had advanced to Executive Assistant.
After retirement Helen traveled with her husband seeing much of the United States and bringing treasured memories and trinkets home to her children. She continued her site-seeing with her sons after the passing of her husband visiting Skyline Drive, Busch Gardens, Moyock, and the Outer Banks.
Helen remained active through the enjoyment of her children, activities with her New Song Fellowship church community, and with her Facebook friends.
Helen was immeasurably loved and cherished by her family and will be deeply missed.
