Dear Family of Helen. I am so sorry for your loss. Helen became a part of our family and was always over when any of us were at Shellman. She and I had many long talks while sitting in the swing. She would not let you do anything for her. If you did She had to do something in return. I was at Shellman today and it can never be the same. God called her home and dear Frank was there to take her hand. She is Happy May God Bless you all

Betty Goff, Savh. , Ga

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 and the website jw. org.

I am sorry for your loss. Death is painful to all of us. However God's word the Bible always offers encouragement. A scripture I find comforting is Isaiah 25:8. There Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. That will be very satisfying! I hope this thought has been comforting to you. May positive thoughts fill you hearts and minds as you endure this difficult time.

Mary Helen Buck passed away Friday, September 29, 2017.  Helen was born November 21, 1921 in Swainsboro, GA to Ira Gordon Thompson and Etta Mae (Thrett) Thompson, the fourth of 6 children.

Helen was predeceased by her husband of 45 years, Frank M. Buck, Jr., in May of 1991.  She was also predeceased by her siblings: brothers Woodrow W. Thompson (Ruth); Weldon T. Thompson (Marian); & sisters Nina W. (Thompson) Strahan (Jeff); Betty L. (Thompson) Wilson.

She is survived by her youngest sister Catherine Ann (Thompson) Zellers of Altamont Springs, Fl.  Also left to cherish her memory are her children; Danny R. Buck (JoAnn) Rocky Point, NC; Martin J. Buck (Ava) Rincon, GA; Gregory F. Buck (Anne) of Mt Pleasant, SC. Grandchildren: Guy T. Buck (Elizabeth), Savannah, GA; Wendy Weimer-Buck, Hollywood, FL; Matthew Buck, Savannah, GA; Amanda (Buck) Bowen (Chris), Pooler, GA; Emily G. Buck, Charleston, SC, and Granddaughter-in-law Dee Ann (Hopkins) Buck, Savannah, GA.

She is also survived by Great-Grand Children Kamerina Weimer, Keigan Akers, Spencer Buck, Nicholas Buck, Madison Buck, Tabitha Weimer and Rhys Bowen.

Helen and Frank were married in November of 1945.  She was 24, a cashier at Morrison’s Cafeteria in downtown Savannah and he was a 25 year old U. S. Marine Corps Sergeant recently returned from WWII service with the Fifth Amphibious Corps in the Pacific Theater, then stationed at Camp LeJeune, NC.   Helen and Frank were a devoted couple and loving and nurturing parents.  He followed the demands of his Marine Corps career taking Helen and the kids whenever possible, (all but two overseas assignments).  Helen was a wonderful mother, who made a warm home for her family wherever the military or life landed them.  Following Frank’s retirement from the Marine Corps, they settled in Savannah.  She had the heart of a Bantam Rooster when crossed or threatened, and she would stand her ground when she thought she was right.  Mom and Dad were modest in their expectations from life, serious about a good work ethic, good discipline and solidly believed in the importance of family and mutual respect.  Humor was always an important part of our family life.  The last few years robbed Mom of sight and hearing, largely cutting her off from the world and those she loved so much, but she was strong and independent to the end.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete. A memorial service at a later date will be announced.
