Roy Helen Herndon Mingus Ackers was not only the “Life of the Party”, she was a businesswoman, a columnist, a mother, a wife, and a supporter of many of the charitable organizations in town. Her legacy will make a lasting impression on the community. This memorial to Roy Helen not only celebrates her colorful life, but also reveals a woman before her time – she began working in the 1940s, continued until she retired at 65, and then tirelessly volunteered her time in various capacities. Join us as we celebrate Roy Helen through interviews, photographs, and highlights of her 96 years.
