image_430Helen N. McKee Hiestand passed away Nov. 27, 2016.     Helen was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend, and was a faithful and devoted disciple of Christ our Lord.
She was born on Jan. 4, 1944, to the late Elmer and Tressa (Graham) McKee and grew up in California.  Helen later married Ed Hiestand and after several moves as an Air Force family, they moved back to Hillsboro.  Helen was involved in local politics, and retired from federal service after working for Congressmen Bob McEwen, Frank Cremeans, and Rob Portman.
She was a dedicated member of First United Methodist Church, singing in the Chancel Choir.  Her spiritual journey led her to serve with the Wilmington Area Walk to Emmaus, and later as a year round volunteer for Samaritan’s Purse through Operation Christmas Child.
She is survived by her husband of 51 years, Ed Hiestand; children, Joe (Moira) Hiestand and Janis (Mike) Halteman; grandchildren Drew and Cara Hiestand and Avery Halteman; sister, Wanda (Owen) Crump of Texas; nieces Scarlett (Scott) Bromley of New Mexico and Deborah Cavanaugh of Texas and nephew Joe (Anne) Garrett of Maryland.  She will be deeply missed by all.
A celebration of life service will be held at Hillsboro First United Methodist Church on Dec. 11, 2016, at 4 p.m.
Thompson Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
