Helen Abraham

August 7, 1915 — February 11, 2008

Services for Mrs. Helen Abraham, 92, of Canadian, Texas will be at 2:00 P.M. Saturday, February 16, 2008 at the First Presbyterian Church with Kari Stainback, Rev. Ashley Abraham Hood and Rev. Ed Cooley, officiating. Burial will follow in Edith Ford Memorial Cemetery in Canadian, TX under the direction of Hughs Funeral Home of Canadian, Texas. Mrs. Abraham passed away Monday, February 11, 2008 in Canadian, Texas. Helen was born August 7, 1915 in Merkel, TX to the late Mr. Frank Ferguson and Mrs. Maude Hill Ferguson. The family later moved to Paducah, TX where she graduated from high school in 1933. While still living in Paducah she met her neighbor Tom Abraham, a Texas Tech University graduate who had moved to Paducah, TX to help work with family members in The Fair Department Store. Helen later married Tom Abraham on April 28, 1935. He preceded her in death on February 8, 2007. They moved to Canadian, TX where she and Tom worked at The Fair Department Store, and eventually became owners. Helen and her husband Tom were members of the First Presbyterian Church for many years. When Tom would receive recognition or honors Helen was always present, quietly smiling and visibly proud. These frequent events never caused Helen to become envious, and in many ways she was the strength behind Tom’s endeavors. She was preceded in death by her sister, Ruby Miles Reynolds and her son-in-law, Raiford Stainback, Jr. She is survived by two daughters, Donna Abraham Stainback of Greenville, TX; Kay Abraham Brown and husband Terry of Canadian, TX; one son, Ken Abraham and wife Renee of Lubbock, TX; nine grandchildren, Kent Stainback, Kari Stainback, Timothy Stainback, Lacy Stainback Feezel, Kyle Abraham, Rev. Ashley Abraham Hood, Alex Abraham, Wendi Brown Stephens and Hilary Brown Beedy; and 19 great-grandchildren. Pallbearers will be Kent Stainback, Timothy Stainback, Kyle Abraham, Blake Beedy, Kelly Feezel, Doug Hood and Kirk Stephens. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13 The family suggests memorials be made to a favorite charity.
