  • Notes 
    • She never married. Born slightly cross-eyed, she spent her life (mistakenly) convinced she was unattractive. She worked for the Post Office and was kind.

      From Jas Hayden:

      "6416 Helen was the apartment where my Grandmother Workman and Aunt Neville ('Sissy', 'Pea-Pa') lived in Detroit....where I spent many happy urban neighborhood hours away from Muddy Shoulders, [but] was in the path of the Edsel Ford Expressway so the entire area remains only in my dreams."
