Helen was born October 15, 1928, in Quanah, Texas. When she was two years of age, her parents moved to the Roswell area. Helen attended schools in Roswell, graduating from Roswell High School in 1946. After graduation, she began working for American National Insurance Company. She met her husband, Willis Savage, when she was 14 years old, through her friend who was his niece, Drucella Savage Wilson. Willis and Helen were married at 8:00 AM on Sunday morning, August 3, 1947. Helen continued to work for American National Insurance until they began their family. God blessed their union with two girls and two boys. While raising children, Helen was involved in Extension Club and various school PTA organizations. Her greatest joy and fulfillment came in serving her Lord and Savior as she taught children, worked with Senior Adults, sang in the choir, and many other ministry opportunities that were hers through her church.
