Helen was born March 2nd, 1926 to Roy and Roberta Radford in Jasper County, MO. She was a long time member of the Kansas City Baptist Temple and loved the fellowship of her Home Team as well as many other church friends. Helen loved her family deeply and her greatest joy was getting to spend time with her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. She was a cancer survivor and thanked God daily for His grace on her life. Helen retired in 1987 from Fireman’s Fund Insurance where she was a policy typist for many years. Helen enjoyed traveling to Europe, Hawaii, the Holy Land and all over the USA but always loved coming back home.

She leaves behind three other sisters, Ann Anderson, Kathleen Meeders and Virginia Gray, her loving and devoted husband, Edwin Hale Sr., daughter Janet Whitehead, sons Kenneth Murdick and Steve Murdick, step-daughter Linda Rivera and step-son, Ed Hale Jr. She is also survived by 13 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and numerous church friends.
