OBITUARY - HELEN LUCILLE LYDDON ROUDYBUSH

Helen Lucille LYDDON ROUDYBUSH was born January 12, 1922, on a farm two miles south and three quarters of a mile west of Clearfield, Iowa on the old HARDIN place, to her parents Lee Ellsworth "Elizie" LYDDON and Hazel Grace LYDDON. Born also to this union was her dear sister, Hilda M. LYDDON DARST.

Helen attended country schools and graduated as salutatorian from Clearfield high school in 1938. She was raised in the Methodist Church, continued her membership in the church, and was a member of Women's circles throughout her life.

On January 14,1939, Helen was united in marriage to John Earl ROUDYBUSH. To this union were born four children, Betty Joyce, Cheryl Deanna, Gary Ellsworth and Bonnie Lynne. Helen and Earl raised these children in the Clearfield and Mount Ayr, Iowa areas where she was a wonderful mother and wife, and was known for her cooking and helpfulness. They lived for about 50 years on a farm in the "Lesonville" area east of Mount Ayr, until retirement, at which time Earl and Helen moved into Mount Ayr.

Helen struggled through Parkinson's Disease for about 18 years. She passed away at Mount Ayr Health Care Center on November 16,1999, at the age of 77 years, 10 months and four days.

She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter Betty, sisters-in-law, Ruth ROUDYBUSH and Ruth HALEY.

Services were at the United Methodist Church of Mount Ayr on Friday, November 19, 1999 with Reverend Michael DRUHL officiating. Musicians were Debbie CANNON, Mary WEBB and Margaret BICKERS. Casketbearers were Brian ROUDYBUSH, Kevin ROUDYBUSH, Neil SHIMER, Jerry HALEY, R. B. DAVENPORT and Raymond HENSLEY. Honorary pallbearers were Julie ROUDYBUSH and Jaclyn SHIMER.
