Helen M. Long

June 25, 2014

Helen M. Long passed away on Monday, June 23, 2014.  She was the eldest daughter of Sam and Nellie Blanche Ingram's seven children.  She was born on August 18, 1924 in Blytheville, Arkansas.  She moved to Starkville, MS in 1967.  She was the owner of a ladies clothing store during the 1970's.  She retired after working several years in the admissions office of Oktibbeha County Hospital.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Ruby Nell Brown; three brothers, Willis, Bob, and Gene Ingram; her first husband, William L. Arrington; and her second husband, William S. (Bill) Long.
She is survived by her daughters, Suzette Chaiken (Norton) of Farmington Hills, Mich., and Lee Ann Stewart (Jimmy) of Florence, AL; son, Bill Arrington (Ginger) of Starkville, MS; brothers, Glenn Ingram (Glenda) of Houston, TX, and O'Dell Ingram (Robbie) of Pismo Beach, CA; 10 grandchildren, Sam Arrington (Stephanie), Jessi Arrington (Creighton Mershon), Amy Yates (Jay), Craig Stewart, Katie Stewart, Chad Chaiken, Natalie Chaiken, Tiffany McDavid, and William Thornhill; and one great grandchild, Kaylee Stewart.
She was a devout Christian and faithful member of Fellowship Baptist Church.  She had many friends since she willingly offered friendship and respect to everyone she met.
Next to her Christian faith, motherhood was her highest calling.  She answered that call by providing her children and grandchildren with unconditional love and support.  She will be missed.
Visitation for Mrs. Long is scheduled for Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. Fellowship Baptist Church in Starkville, MS, with the funeral service immediately following. Rev. Dickie Bryan will conduct the service.  Burial will be in Memorial Garden Park Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Fellowship Baptist Church or to a charity of choice.
