Mrs. Ferrell was a member of the Methodist Church. She was a former employee of Val Dor in Woodbury, Spartan in Smithville and Bridgestone Tire. Mrs. Helen had a good sense of humor.

She loved her kids, grandkids and especially her great grandkids and made sure to spoil them every chance she had. She was a fan of the Titans and would hardly ever miss watching a game.
