Helen was born November 12, 1928, the daughter of the late Dallas R. and Gene Hope Kight. They lived in White Pine WV, until displaced by the flood of 1943. She graduated from Calhoun County High School and was later involved in organizing the all-class reunions.
She married local attorney, the late Victor Hamilton, and was active in many civic and church activities.
