  • Memoriam

HELEN HAWBAKER, 72, wife of Aden Hawbaker, Greencastle, Pennsylvania, passed away January 31, 1992 after an extended illness.

Helen, a retired school teacher, was a charter member of the Cumberland Valley Antique Engine and Machinery Association, and served as secretary for the group from 1989 until her passing.

Helen's interest in the antique machinery hobby was apparent from the beginning of the CVAEAMA's existence in 1982 when she recorded the names of persons interested in starting a club in the Franklin County area. Her husband Aden was the association's first president.

A faithful worker at the group's functions with her husband, Helen could always be counted on to help wherever needed.

She was a member of the Fetterhoff Chapel United Methodist Church, where she taught Sunday School for more than 40 years. She taught elementary grades in the Greencastle School District for more than 30 years, and was a member of the Pennsylvania Retired Teachers Association. She was president of the Greencastle A.A.R.P., and secretary of the Quincy United Methodist Home Auxiliary, as well as past president of Women's Missionary Society of Fetterhoff Chapel Church.

She is missed by her family and the many friends she made while attending engine meets throughout the area. She is survived by her husband Aden, two sons, and five grandchildren. Submitted by Alton Good, 5380 Swope Rd., Chambersburg, Pennsylvania 17201.
