Helen Kroner

Helen Elizabeth Miller Kroner died on Tuesday, August 6, 2013, in Independence, MO at 96 years of age.

Helen owned and operated Helen’s Beauty Salon in Moberly for over 50 years and was a member of St. Pius X Church.  She will be remembered for her outlandish ear-rings, fun-loving sense of humor and ability to make everyone laugh.
