Mrs. Sasser was born on October 18, 1928, and passed away peacefully on April 1, 2024. Helen loved life and lived it with great joy. She adored family and friends. Her door was always open to visitors, and there was always a meal provided for anyone who stopped by. She was very creative and loved to dance. Helen was very active in her church, Sacred Heart Catholic, and set an example of faith for her family. She was a teacher’s aide for many years and provided an atmosphere of compassion and caring for all the students with whom she worked. Helen is preceded in death by husband, John William Sasser, Jr.; her parents, Turner and Volcie Scallan; her son, Richard Lorenz Sasser; and her sisters, Mary Nell Goux and Theresa Schexnayder.
