Helen M. Harman died peacefully Feb. 3, 2013, at Homewood Health Campus in Lebanon. She was 82. Born Jan. 15, 1931, in Lebanon, she was the second daughter of Velda (Jack) and Marie Temple Ulrey.

She was a 1948 graduate of Lebanon High School, and attended Indiana Central Business College in Indianapolis.

Mrs. Harman started her business career at Stewart-Warner in Lebanon. She was receptionist for Dr. Ritchie Coons and worked in various capacities in the school system. She retired as city clerk-treasurer, after being elected for two terms.

Helen was an active member of the First Baptist Church since childhood, serving on numerous boards and committees, and was an excellent Sunday School teacher. She later transferred her membership to Centenary United Methodist Church. Her church friends were treasured.

Bob and Helen delivered Meals on Wheels for 20 years. She enjoyed extensive traveling, reading, needlework, and was a terrific cook.

Above all, she loved her family.

Helen Marie was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Jacqueline Ulrey Haisley.
