On Oct. 1, 1925, Helen Mier was welcomed into this life by her parents, Albert Fachan and Apollie Faulk, in Abbeville. She was called to her Heavenly Father on July 1, 2019.

Helen was a homemaker and dedicated her life to taking care of her children and family. She loved to cook and visit friends and family, as well as still on her porch in the sunshine. Helen was tremendously loved and will be missed by those left to cherish in her sweet memory.

Helen now rejoices in Heaven with her parents, Albert and Apollie Fachan; her beloved husband, LeRoy Mier; her daughter, Christine Rizzuto; and her son, LeRoy Mier, Jr.

Carrying Helen to her final resting place in Shell Beach Cemetery will be Braxton Breaux, Lane Breaux, Tyler Smith, Ty Griffin, Bobby Mie, and William Smith.
