Helen C. Reuter = Anomaly: “Deviation from the common rule” – Webster Encyclopedic Dictionary…
If ever there was a woman with a zest for trying to find the very best things that life has to offer, be it spiritual, artistic, or simply in the presence of sheer beauty, H.C.R. was at the top of the list.
Helen completed this portion of her journey on Earth the morning of August 13, 2011. She has headed to the great beyond to meet up with some of her long lost best friends and family. As many of you know, she was always “full throttle” when it came to accomplishing anything. Helen was a fantastic designer, COMPLETELY organized; “A place for everything, and everything in it’s place”. She designed and helped create Custom homes at The Vintage, thirty million dollar private car collection showrooms, and vacation Villas in spectacular places all over the world. Everything she touched or arranged became a remarkable “piece”, always having a unique and very artistic, classy ambiance.
The magic of Christmas time was her forte’. She would spend more hours decorating her stunning tree, and the trees and homes of many of her friends, than most people spend in ten years combined. She collected “pieces” from all over the world, not a lot, just one item per location; but each item was spectacular, and brought out the very essence of the area or event that it was cultivated!
Helen lived in San Francisco; a city that she felt had an inordinate amount of class, style, and culture. She loved the City life, and respected every nuance that it had to offer. Those that were in need of help, she reached out to on a regular basis, even though she did not have the financial means, she would give of herself; receiving praise for being the most active needle point member of the congregation; the four chairs at The Alter are her works of art, and took years to create.
