Helen Clendenin, age 74, of Northglenn, CO passed away peacefully in her home on the morning of Monday, December 5th, 2022 while in the loving care of her husband Stephen Clendenin and her cherished dog Lucy.

A Celebration of Life is planned for the spring. It will be held on Saturday, April 15th at 11:30am at the Calvary Community Church (11980 Irma Dr, Northglenn, CO).
