Helen Louise Southard

October 8, 1928 ~ August 27, 2021 (age 92)


Helen Louise Southard, age 92, of Noblesville, IN passed away August 27, 2021 at Franciscon Health in Lafayette, IN.

She was born October 8, 1928 at Noblesville, IN to Larvy and Violet (Clements) Morris.  She was raised in northern Hamilton County and graduated from Walnut Grove High School with the Class of 1946.

She married K Charles Southard on March 6, 1953 and together they raised a family of four children.  They also worked together and for years they were owner/operators of Southard Gravel Company and the H&K Truck Stop, both on or near State Road 37 in northern Hamilton County.  For a few years the Truck Stop was open 24-7 to accommodate  truckers.  Needless to say, they were a hard working couple.

Rare leisure time would find Helen reading, matching wits with game shows on TV, or driving her golf cart around her neighborhood.  She also enjoyed being with her family.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband and a son, Jay Southard.

Surviving her is a daughter: Beth Ann (Joe) Williams of Noblesville, IN, sons: Morris Ray Southard of Tipton, IN, and Eddie K (Cindy) Southard of Noblesville, IN, grandchildren: Tanya, Jake and Samantha Southard, great-grandchildren: Edward, Taylor, Raelyn, and Jason Southard, step-grandchildren: Holly Reinking, Michael McGuire, and Vincent Williams, step great-grandchildren: Isaac McGuire, Leann McGuire and Owen Reinking.
