Obituary

Helen Marguerite Latour, 103 years old, born September 24, 1915, passed away quietly on June 17, 2019, at her home, Holy Redeemer St.
Joseph's Manor, Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania.

Helen grew up in West Philadelphia and moved with her family to Olney, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when Helen was in her teens. Helen put herself through The Philadelphia Beauty School and after hard work and perseverance, Helen bought her own beauty shop in Germantown where the nurses at Germantown Hospital sought her out to be their hairdresser, and ultimately their friend. Again, ahead of her time for women to own property, Helen bought a summer home in Wildwood, NJ for the family she adored. Helen was a crochet and knitting master, and enjoyed the challenge of learning new crafts, and happily teaching her expertise to others.

Helen was the unselfish and devoted caregiver for her beloved mother and father until their death. Helen was the proud and cherished aunt to her many nieces and nephews who all knew and thrived in knowing they were her joy in life.

A graveside service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, 3301 W. Cheltenham Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19150. Family services are entrusted under the care of Craft-Givnish of Abington, Inc. 215-659-2000.
