Obituary: Helen B. (née Hy) Radder

Fri, Apr 7th 2017 03:30 pm

Born Nov. 6, 1917, Helen B. Radder would have been 100 this year, but she was a little short (story of her life!). She finished her race Tuesday morning, March 28, 2017, and gathered the prize that was set before her (Philippians 3:14).

She joins her husband, Rollie G. Radder, her daughter, Marilyn Sprague, her mother Anna Hy and 10 siblings who have gone on before her. She is survived by daughters Janet Mumm of Grand Island, and Carole Murphy and Sue Radder of Franklin, North Carolina, as well as eight grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, 10 great-great-grandchildren and two great-greats on the way!

Born in Buffalo, she lived in the Buffalo area and on Grand Island until moving to Florida in 1973 and then moved halfway back, to Franklin/Highlands, NC in 2011. She was a member of Franklin Covenant Church in Franklin, NC. Her treasured relationship with Jesus Christ and strong faith made her a shining light to many. She lived by her favorite Bible verse, "laughter doeth good like a medicine" (Proverbs 17:22).

A Memorial Picnic is being planned for this summer in Western New York. In the meantime, join us in celebrating the life of Helen Radder by going to your local DQ and have an ice cream in memory of her! And if you want to do it right, you'll have vanilla. No matter how many flavors were ever available, she always chose vanilla!
