Welcome to our Caring Bridge site for our mother, Helen McAlerney Barth. This is the one place where you can get all of the updated information on her condition, and a place where each of you may share how you know Helen and how she touched your life, and/or perhaps, how you touched hers.
Helen first came to the hospital on Thursday, February 16th, 2017, at which time she was diagnosed with an advanced case of pneumonia and we were also told that she had suffered a silent heart attack sometime in the previous five days. The first two days Helen was at the hospital, she was fairly responsive, but her condition has been touch and go since then.
Helen went home to be with the Lord on Monday, February 27th, 2017. She is survived by 2 sons, Timothy Paul Barth and Stephen Marc, and her daughter, Sharon Joy Schaubert.
Please take the time to write your stories, they will mean so much to us. In addition, it would be fun to see pictures of you with Helen, or pictures you took of Helen or just a picture of you along with your story, to refresh our memories and help us connect the dots. The memories you share are part of Helen's lasting legacy and your opportunity to write on the final pages of a life well lived.
