Helen Irene (Carpenter) Burns, 98, passed away Thursday, May 17, 2018 at Brookdale Mountain View in Denver from complications of a stroke.

Helen was born March 21, 1920 in Garnett, Kansas. Her father was a school teacher and principal in rural eastern Kansas. She met her husband and lifelong love, Warren L. Burns, as a junior at Eskridge High School and they were married in 1942. After serving in WWII, Warren made the U.S. Air Force his career and Helen accompanied him on his various postings. While raising their 2 children, she also taught school, and kept busy with her many hobbies of sewing, needle work, researching genealogy, and traveling throughout the world.

Warren and Helen purchased their first motor home in 1970 and spent the next 40 years traveling the U.S., spending many winters in Arizona, California, or Florida. In 1989, they retired to Village of Skyline in Colorado Springs where they happily lived for 26 years until Warren passed away in 2015, after 72 years of marriage. Helen then moved to Brookdale Mountain View in Denver to be near her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph F. and Gertrude F. (Wait) Carpenter; her husband, Warren Burns; brother, Wilbur Carpenter; and sister, Dorothy Mudge. She is survived by her children, Alan (Cindy) and Nancy; grandchildren: Christopher (Cheri), Stephanie (Eduardo), Kimberly (Tyson), and David (Rebecca); and great-grandchildren: Lauren and Rachel LaScala, Diego and Emilio Cornejo, Noah, Simon, and Emmett Lunsford, and Quinn and Sybelle Burns.
