NIAGARA FALLS — On October 9, 2013, the Lord welcomed Helen Elizabeth (Betty) Reeves. She was the daughter of Edward and Arletta Walsh. Sister of the late Gerald (Barbara) Walsh.

She was blessed with a wonderful son, Kim (Barbara) Reeves. Continued blessings with three grandchildren, Amanda (Joel) DiCesare, Elizabeth (Michael) O'Connor and Evan (Angela) Reeves. And warmed her heart with five great-grandchildren, Bailey, Reilly, Stella, Quinn and Rowan.
