Helenann Frodge, 78, loving wife, devoted mother and dedicated grandmother, died Thursday, October 9, 2008 in Abilene. Her wishes were to be cremated and no services will be held. Arrangements are with Elmwood Funeral Home, 5750 HWY 277 South.
Helen was born on September 20, 1930 in Chicago, Illinois. She moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1952 where she met William A. Frodge, who was beginning his career in the Air Force. They were married on December 2, 1958 in Lordsburg, New Mexico. They lived many places through their various Air Force assignments and made Clyde their home when Bill retired after being stationed at Dyess. Helen was active in the NCO Wives Club and the AKC Kennel Club. She was a friend to many and will be dearly missed.
Survivors include her husband of 49 years, Bill Frodge of Clyde; her children, Sandra Jean Frane of Peoria, Arizona, Richard Alan Frodge, and Donna Ann Hopai of Clyde; three grandchildren, Tracy Rogers, Tommy Pritchard and Leilani Hopai; and three great-grandchildren.
I will miss her. The Abilene Kennel Club shows will never be the same without Jo and Helen. Godspeed Helen.

Ill miss all the stories about the trips you and Joe took while showing dogs. The afghans you made will be cherished by everyone that has one. Alot of people will be upset that theres not one for the raffle this year since they always try to win one. Most of all Ill miss you friendship and sense of humor and it will be hard not looking for your truck at the bingo place.
