HELEN MARTIN GILES: We have lost a fabulous K8 sister. Helen Martin Gilles, a pediatrician in Lawrence passed away late this week. Her obit is in the Lawrence Journal-World. She lived in Miller from 1939-42, and her sister Corrine lived in Watkins. They remembered when Eleanor Roosevelt visited Miller Hall. In typical style, these sharp-witted sisters commented that the First Lady had a run in her hose!! Helen will be missed. Please go read about her remarkable life.
