Helen Rexrode

Helen Mae (Wilson) Rexrode, 85, beloved wife of Charles Eugene Rexrode for 66 years, passed away Wednesday (Aug. 14, 2013) in her Mannington home.

She was born Feb. 7, 1928, at Baxter, a daughter of the late Silas James “Pete” and Hazel May Wilson.

In addition to her husband, she is also survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Joyce and Jim Yost of Morgantown; two sons and daughters-in-law, Charles Ed and Charlotte Rexrode of Mannington, and Gene and Ruth Rexrode of Katy Run; six grandchildren, Nicole Yost, Stephen Yost and wife Trina, Charles Andrew Rexrode and wife Trish, Amanda Marie Rexrode, Rhonda Renee Rexrode and Lora Leigh Rexrode; 11 great-grandchildren, Gabriella Gonzales, Ethan Gonzales, Kolby, Abigail, Alaina and Isabelle Yost, Kaitlynn Rexrode, Vincent and Levi Yost, and Zoe and Alex Rexrode; a brother, Howard Wilson and wife Dottie of Falling Waters; a sister, Dorothy Wilson of Newark, Ohio; sisters-in-law, Zela Wilson, Baxter, and Agnes Whinnie of Mantua, Ohio; and several wonderful nieces and nephews.

She was also preceded in death by a brother, Robert “Corny” Wilson; a sister, Joan Wilson Cromer; a cousin, whom she lived a large part of her childhood with, Virginia Wilson Cross; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Freda and Dale Bennett, Thomas Whinnie, Pearl and Clyde Rexrode, and Grace and Bennie Fancher.

Helen graduated from Rivesville High School in 1946, worked at the Westinghouse plant and the Marion County Tax Office, and retired from the First Exchange Bank in Mannington. She was a wonderful wife and mother, a warm, loving lady. She made quilts for all of her children and grandchildren. She loved flowers and playing cards with her husband and family.

She was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Mannington, and along with her husband, was involved with the Mannington Little League for many years. She was a member of the Marion County Democratic Women and committee woman for the Mannington District. Helen also went parasailing for the first time at age 75.

It’s hard to think of a world without Helen. We know she is in a better place.

Friends may call at the Hutson Funeral Home, 500 E. Main St., Mannington, from 2-8 p.m. today. Funeral services will be held on Saturday at 2 p.m. with Pastor Charles Fancher officiating. Interment will be in the Mannington Memorial Park Cemetery.
