| April/May 1998

Engine show enthusiast HELEN INGALLS of Battle Creek, Michigan, passed away suddenly on November 19.

Helen and husband Bob were members of the Michigan Flywheelers Museum and the Florida Flywheelers Club.

They attended antique engine and tractor shows throughout the Michigan/Indiana area and also in Florida in a Coachmen camper, pulling a display of flywheel engines, including a working corn grinder. During the Michigan Flywheelers' annual show, Helen supervised the 'Chinese Auction,' and could often be found helping with ad missions at the gate. She also participated in all of the ladies auxiliary events and helped in the development of the grounds and buildings at the museum.

Helen will be remembered fondly for not only her collection of chicken items but for her beautiful and contagious laugh and her smiling face.

She is survived by her husband Bob; sons Pat and Mike, their wives Kim and Terrie, and two grandchildren.
