Helen Frances Woods Kynard, a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away peacefully on November 23, 2023, at Park Place Nursing Home in Selma, Alabama. Born on April 17, 1944, in Marion, Alabama, Helen lived a life full of love, laughter, and an unwavering dedication to her family and her faith.
Helen was preceded in death by her parents, Earnest Lapsley and Melinda Woods, her devoted husband, Willie Kynard, her beloved daughter, Regina Kyn-ard, cherished granddaughter, Patricia Jackson, and her two brothers, Willie Woods, and Henry Woods. Despite these losses, Helen's spirit remained unbro-ken, and her love for her family never wavered.
She leaves behind a legacy that will be carried on by her five children, Willie A. (Frederica) Kynard of Greensboro, Alabama, Freeman Kynard of Marion, Ala-bama, Lee Arthur Kynard of Fort Worth, Florida, Quantin (Cantine) Kynard of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and Ronald T. Kynard of Bessemer, Alabama. She is also survived by her sister, Ernestine Lapsley, and her brothers, Albert Woods, Ernest Mayhand, and Bennie Rutledge. Helen's love will continue to live on in the hearts of her 10 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who will miss her dearly.
Helen's faith was a significant part of her life. She joined the Hopewell Baptist Church at a young age, where she served her community with devotion and grace. Her faith gave her strength and guided her through life's challenges.
A woman of many interests, Helen found joy in the simple pleasures of life. She loved fishing, a hobby that brought her closer to nature and provided her with countless hours of peace and tranquility. An excellent cook, Helen's kitchen was always filled with the tantalizing aromas of her delicious meals, which she loved to share with her family and friends. She also enjoyed talking to her friends on the phone, a testament to her sociable nature and her ability to maintain close relationships despite the distance.
Loving is the word that best describes Helen. Her love was not confined to her family alone; it extended to everyone she met. She was a beacon of love, warmth, and kindness, and her love will continue to shine brightly in the hearts of those who knew her.
