At the age of 16, she met the love of her life, Harley E. Reed, a United States Army WWII Soldier. They were married at Phillipsrue Castle, Hanau Germany.

Harley “Gene” and Helene “Leny” relocated to Apollo, PA to reunite and meet his family.

The Reed Home was a place that all were Willkommen and would never leave hungry or thirsty; family parties and holidays were made special with family music and Helene’s cooking. Most of all Helene’s greatest joy was her husband, Harley, children and grand/great-grandchildren.
