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.

On May 11, 1940, she married Durwood W. Reeves, who predeceased her on July 4, 1977.

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.

Betty also leaves behind loved ones who always considered her "Grandma." Pat and Gene Cantlon, Nancy, Dan Gary and Elliott Sims, Karen Harvey, Sharon and Victor Ketch, Melissa and Justin McCauley, Keith, Jennifer, Warren and Calvin Giles.

Clair, Nellie, Rebecca Harvey and Ashley Sims are among many who will welcome her into the Gates of Heaven.
