Helen Ellis Broomhall was born on March 18, 1944 to John and Gladys Broomhall in Magnolia, Mississippi. The Broomhall family lived in Magnolia until she was in her teens, when the family, of ten, moved to Sand Springs, OK. Helen met John Porter and the two were married in 1965. Together they raised four children Jamesa, Jeff, Johnny, and Justin. \r\n\r\nHelen was known to be feisty and spoke without a filter. She lovingly devoted her life to her family, house, flowers, and gardens. Her house was spotless to the point of the highest degree. If there were not vacuum marks in the carpet, it was not clean enough for her. Her kitchen was always full of, from scratch, breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Her rose bushes, marigolds, and hanging pots were always watered and she kept them blooming even in the hottest of months. She starched and ironed jeans to the point that they could stand on their own. She packed school lunches that were envied by everyone in the lunchroom. There wasn't a puzzle she couldn't complete or a Skip-Bo game she couldn't win. \r\n\r\nShe loved her children with all her heart, but they couldn't hold a light to her grandchildren. She was known to take them to amusement parks or shopping where she spared no expense. She could often be found zooming down the driveway, on a four wheeler, with a laughing grandchild on the back. Disney World couldn't hold a light to her house, in the eyes of her grandkids. \r\n\r\nHelen left this world on December 3, 2019. She was preceded in death by her parents John and Gladys Broomhall, her sisters Bobbie Harcrow and Bettie Billingsley, brothers Billy, John, Glen, and Ronnie Broomhall. She is survived by her sister Nellie Walton, husband John Porter, daughter Jamesa Porter, and sons Jeff and wife Ragan, Johnny and wife Jeanette, Justin and wife Megan. She leaves behind nine grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. \r\n\r\nHelen may be gone from our current lives but she will never be forgotten by anyone who knew her. She was tough as nails but her caring heart truly touched anyone who had the pleasure of being around her. May we all strive to be as loving, caring, and devoted as Helen.
