In memory of
Helen L. Thorson
Helen L. Thorson Evansville, Ind. - Helen L. Thorson, 88, of Evansville, Indiana, passed away on Friday, July 31, 2020 at Walnut Creek Alzheimer's Special Care Center. The most gracious hostess, friend, wife and daughter that Alabama could have produced has left this weary world. Helen Lob was born on August 31, 1931. She came to Evansville as the late Milton Z. Thorson's bride. He was so aware of the sterling quality person she was as well as bright in many areas of expertise. Family welcomed her with open arms. Charlotte Wade dubbed her "sweet magnolia". She could even keep up with Milton and all his buddies as they fished for redfish in the Everglades. They welcomed many a friend from Evansville to their Key Biscayne home. Though she majored in textile design in college, she worked as a social worker in Montgomery, Alabama, right out of college. Her heart took home with her those she served. She too endured hard things in her own life with nary a complaint. Milton became her knight on the white horse. What fun they had, what devotion they demonstrated to all of us. They shared a love of fishing, golf, dancing, traveling, people and she was a natural interior designer. Her mix of southern cooking and French cuisine was mouthwatering. She shared 20 years of her interesting and fun life with the late Donald B. Ingle. He was ever the wise man to let her think she was the decision maker. She came to count on his keen mind in later years. Helen is survived by Charles D. Storms, her step grandson, whom she counted on and leaned on as long as she could understand. They had such hearty laughter watching "I Love Lucy" at Walnut Creek, and there were many hymns singalongs with Alan Jackson by CD. Lauren and Matt Courtney rescued Charley many times when Helen needed help he could not give alone. They were God's gift to Helen and to him. Here is where Charley Storms tries to give thanks for the 4 years that Kelli and Dawn and the staff at Walnut Creek loved and cared for Helen, always alert to any problem she had. Helen knew you really cared about her. She never complained about having her home at Walnut Creek. Any place can do programs, food and safety, but the people factor is what makes the atmosphere a lift. Please know you gave us such peace of mind too for these 4 years. Then Brandi and SouthernCare Hospice and Julia made that difficult transition time peaceful, not dreaded. We can almost hear her soft voice saying:"Now aren't you just sweet!". Browning Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements. There will be no funeral or visitation. Private graveside service will be held at Oak Hill Cemetery. Anyone desiring to give in Helen Thorson's name, should give to a charity of your choice. Condolences may be made online at www.browningfuneral.com .
