Celebrating Helen’s 100th Birthday!
Helen Dartt was born in Wellsboro on March 16, 1921, to Myron and Christine Dartt and continued to live her entire life here!
We are celebrating her 100th Birthday and reminiscing about some special relationships over those years on this broadcast.
Her first marriage was to Bill Davis, which took place in 1946 at the First Presbyterian Church. They welcomed two children, Joe and Linda, who have now, through their marriages, blessed her with three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Many years after Bill died, she married again to George Putnam in 1993; she was blessed with four stepchildren and now with 14 step-grandchildren and 14 great step-grandchildren.
As she shared these details of her life, there was a tangible sense of contentment with the life she lived as she looked to God for guidance. When Sara asked her, “what is one thing that you did not do yet that you wanted to do?” Helen replied, “I can’t think of any big thing that would stand out.” “Contentment is an attitude that says, I will be satisfied with what God has given me.” Anonymous
During the interview, she expressed a few more points to ponder:
1. Pray for your life, and God will direct your way.
2.If you have plans, go ahead with them before it is too late.
3. Love your children and try to lead them in the right way.
4. Allow your family and friends to support you in your life.
The Sunday before her 100th Birthday, the First Presbyterian Church Member Care arranged for a car parade to pass by Country Terrace to bless her and the other residents living there. Many cars came to bless Helen with fun signs, such as the 2021 PA State Helen Festival.
If you would like to bless Helen celebrating this milestone, please send them to Helen Putnam 1919 Shumway Hill Road Wellsboro, Pa 16901.
