Helen K. Meadows, age 91, of Huber Heights, Ohio, passed away peacefully on August 16, 2023, surrounded by her daughters. She was born June 26,1932, to William Buchan and Marie Elizabeth (Sites) Bruce in Ironton, Ohio. She attended schools in Greenup and Ashland, Kentucky. In 1952, she married Wayne H.

She loved to bake and there was always a fresh baked dessert on the kitchen counter. She was known for her pecan pie and cheesecake, even winning blue ribbons for them at the county fair.
She was an active member of several Masonic organizations, including Daughters of the Nile (60 yrs), Order of the Eastern Star (60 years), White Shrine of Jerusalem, and Order of the Amaranth.
She had been married to Wayne for 66 years when he died in 2019. She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, Wilfred Bruce, Raymond Bruce, Robert Bruce, James Bruce, and sisters, Margaret Sterrett, Mary Black, and Joan Berkley.
She is survived by her daughters Janis Meadows, Mary Meadows (Michael Browne), and Margaret Palmer, and several nieces and nephews.
