Helen L. Hall, 68, of Belpre, Ohio, entered into eternal life on Nov. 30, 2012, at home with family by her side. Helen's body was donated to the Ohio State University - School of Medicine, where students can learn so others may live.
Helen was born April 6, 1944, in Kanawha County, W.Va., as the daughter of the late Henry Dennis Gandee and Birdie Martha Gandee. Helen was a devoted and caring mother, and a wonderful, loving wife.

Settle and her husband W. Anderson Settle; two brother-in-laws, Charles R. Hall and G. William (Bill) Trout; and a niece, Lisa (Gandee) Joson.
