Helen grew up at Walters and graduated with the WHS Class of 1944 before attending 2 years at OBU. She married Justice Tillman “J.T.” Wyatt on May 27, 1946 at Walters. Upon J.T.’s graduation from mortuary school the couple made their home in Temple and soon began a family. They moved to Walters in late 50’s and Helen was employed at Cotton Electric for a time. In 1969 they bought out their partner in Pearson Funeral Home, renaming it Wyatt Funeral Home. Helen kept books for the business until she and J.T. retired in 1984.

The couple enjoyed their home at Waurika Lake during the 1980’s and 90’s and then had a short stay back in Walters before settling into the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas where they joined the First Baptist Church of McAllen. Helen was always active in her local churches, teaching Sunday School for children and youth. In November of 2015 she moved back to Oklahoma making her home at Canoe Brook Assisted Living in Duncan, and began attending Missionary Baptist Church.
