      OBITUARY

      Published in TimesHeraldOnline [Vallejo, CA] on Mar. 13, 2010

      Helen Fields passed away peacefully at the age of 92. She was born in Glen Alum, West Virginia, to John Dee and Orba Mae Bandy. The oldest of six children, she was a feisty little girl who learned how to hold her own with five rowdy brothers, eventually outliving them all.

      A lifelong Christian, she came to know the Lord as a very young girl. She was always ready with a testimony of her love for Him.

      While possessing many domestic talents, she often said the one accomplishment she was most proud of was God giving her the ability to care for her disabled daughter for over forty years - well into old age. As it says in Psalms 92, "They shall still bring forth fruit in old age."

      Her loved ones are greatly saddened by her passing, but are comforted by the hope of meeting once again when Christ returns.

      Helen was preceded in death by her husband, Woodrow Fields, and son, Jackie Fields. She is survived by her three daughters, Sherry Malone of Charleston, West Virginia, Jean Kieser (Larry) of Vallejo, and Brenda Fields, also of Vallejo; six grandchildren, Marsha, Deann, Tedd Lee, Tanya, Ginger and Alexandra; six great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
