Mrs. Helvey was a member of Victory Baptist Church in North Augusta, SC. She was strong in her faith and shared His love to many through her hospitality and generosity. Her Sunday dinners were an open door to all. She deeply loved her grandchildren and spent a lot of time with them having sleepovers. She was the true definition of a loving grandmother. One of her favorite hobbies was doing puzzles. Mrs. Helvey will be deeply missed by all whose lives she touched.
