Helen Grace Burnett McCormick, 77, of Amarillo, died Friday, March 1, 2013.
Visitation with the family was at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, March 4, 2013, at Boxwell Brothers Ivy Chapel, 2800 Paramount Blvd. Services were scheduled at 11:00 a.m. with Gene Shelburne and Lyndon Latham officiating.
Mrs. McCormick was born March 13, 1935, in Fredonia, TX, to Arch and Pauline Burnett. She married Henry David McCormick on June 19, 1954. Together they distributed the Christian Appeal for many years, and she worked as the secretary and was an active member of West Amarillo Church of Christ. Helen spent most of her life in Amarillo before retiring to her beloved Hill Country homestead of Mason, TX. An avid outdoorswoman, Helen could frequently be found gardening, camping, or swimming and fishing in the Llano River. Until further notice, you can find Helen frolicking in fields of bluebonnets, likely with grubbing hoe in tow.
Survivors include her husband, Henry David McCormick; children Andrea De’Aun Bryan and her husband Dennis, Tolley David McCormick and wife Cheryl; grandchildren Davi Bryan, Andrea Ward and husband Seth, Alan Bryan, Ross McCormick, Taylor McCormick, and Tori Richards; great-grandchildren Abigail, Grace and “baby” Ward (due in July); siblings Nova Ritter, La Jean Ramey, Paula Barbieri, Bobby Burnett; and too many friends and loved ones to count. She is preceded in death by siblings Celesta Nobles and Max Burnett.
The family would like to express special thanks for the care given by Menard Manor and Plum Creek Healthcare Center.
