Nettie Sue Watson Helfrich

Nettie Sue Watson Helfrich, 79, of Emporia, passed away Sunday, November 18, 2018.  She was the daughter of the late Lamar and Nettie Watson and was also preceded in death by four brothers.

Our MOTHER was an example of the Proverbs 31 Godly Woman.  She was a great Mother and Wife. She was our Father’s business partner and “life coach” lol, while taking care of the family and her home with perfection.

She could execute any task she was given with sheer determination and with a smile on her face. Our Mother loved her girls more than life and gave us the greatest JOY that life brings. She held a “special place” in her heart for each one of her grandchildren. Her smile was big and bright like the sparkle in her eyes. Strength and Honor will guide us for the rest of our days because of “OUR MOTHER”

She is survived by her husband, Frederick Joseph Helfrich, III; three daughters, Mary Jane Yeattes (Mark), Sue “Pickles” Green (Troy) and Brenda McCrary (Daniel); step-son, David Helfrich (Theresa); nine grandchildren: D. J. , Troy, Jr., Sammy Jo, Mark, Jr., Danielle, Mary Elizabeth, Freddy, Sarah, Faith, five great-grandchildren; brothers, Douglas, Sammy, Shang; sisters, Virginia, Elizabeth and Margaret; sister-in-law and best friend, Harriette Burks; sisters-in-law, Brenda Worley (Wayne) and Delores Taylor (Dave) and a number of nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Sunday, November 25 at Grace Community Fellowship Church, 8014 Little Lowground Rd, Emporia, Virginia where the family will receive friends following the service.

Memorial contributions may be made to Grace Community Fellowship Church.

Online condolences may be shared with the family at owenfh.com.
