Helen Prosser Obituary

Helen Rosemary Prosser, age 83, of Galion, a beloved Mom, Granny, Sister, Aunt and Friend, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Wednesday November 29, 2023, at her home in Galion. Helen was born on December 18, 1939, in Vanceburg, Kentucky, to the late George and Lula (Miller) Stratton.

Helen had a vibrant spirit that touched the lives of many. She had an extraordinary career as a bartender, working at VFW Post 2920 and Crokies in Crestline. Her love for others, warm smile, friendly demeanor, and exceptional ability to connect with people made her a cherished member of her family and the community.

Those that had the pleasure of knowing Helen knew that they were loved unconditionally.  She was always caring towards others and often would put their needs before her own. Helen enjoyed spending her time playing cards, either a game of poker or euchre.  She was known for never folding or backing down.

Helen will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all who knew her.

In addition to her late husbands, Paul Prosser, and William Prosser, she is preceded in death by her children; Steve Prosser, Ronnie Hoffman, Dreama Easterly, grandson; Jonathan Wilcox, siblings; John Stratton, Bob Stratton, George Stratton, Bill Stratton, Leroy Stratton, and Ethel Crokie,
