Helen's Story

"God looked around His garden and saw an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful...He only takes the best."

Helen Linda (Cook) Munson, 70, went home to be with her precious Saviour, July 5, 2016, with a heart problem, at Penobscot Valley Hospital. She was born August 1, 1945, in Lincoln, the daughter of the late Edgar and Ada Cook.

Helen never moved far from her birthplace and was loved by many in her small, close-knit community ... especially at the Golden Key Senior Center. She had a very gentle and sweet spirit about her and was kind to everyone. Her two favorite men in this world were her husband Avon E. and her son Avon T. whom she spoke of often. Helen graduated from the Springfield Public School System and Lee Academy. She joined the (WAC) Women's Army Corps after her graduation.

Helen is survived by her beloved husband, Avon E. Munson, who was the love of her life and together they had just celebrated their 50th Anniversary in May of this year. She is also survived by one son Avon T. and his wife Wendy L. Munson of Cuyler, New York; five step brothers and sisters, Jane and Leland White from Norridgewock, Maine, Denny and Joyce Cole of Benton, Maine, Sewell Cole of Oakland, Maine, Neil Cole of Mattawamkeag, Maine, and Una and Mike Spencer of Brewer.
