Helen Burkett, one of the first women Toastmasters, has passed away

We have experienced a great loss.   The end of September, Helen Burkett, passed away.  Helen started as a Toastmaster under the name “Homer” because women could not yet be Toastmasters.  This quickly changed with Helen’s help.  May Helen’s legacy live on, in the many lives she has touched. Funeral arrangements are pending.

  1. Most grateful to have served as the Sergeant-at-Arms for the TLI which Ms. Helen attended during the 2018-2019 sessions. It was great introducing her to those in attendance. She was most gracious and the epitome of a Distinguished Toastmaster !
