Helen Sweet


Helen devoted herself fully to her true passions in life.  Earning her 1st Class Scout and Aviator Wings as a young girl led her to be a lifelong member of the Girls Scouts.  Following her love of breeding Great Danes, she dedicated her time and energy to their care, founding and leading kennel clubs throughout her life.

Her greatest passion was for her family - in all its forms.  She took pride in each and every family member, whether related by marriage or by the lasting bonds of friendship and her tough and unconditional love will always be remembered.

To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Sweet Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following




The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law. The organization, founded in 1866, was the first humane society established in North America and is dedicated to shaping a society that continuously improves the lives of animals.
