Boring, Helen  
Helen P. Boring was born on August 12, 1932, in Colby, Kansas to Bernice Grady and Dwight W. Boring, Sr. She died July 19, 2016 at West Covina, California. She was proud of her heritage as a member of the pioneer Western Kansas family established by her grandfather, George Grady. She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Dwight W. Boring, Jr. and her stepfather, Colby pharmacist Tom Berg. She is survived by her niece Karen Hinz of Mundelein, Illinois, and her nephew Mike Boring of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Helen's marriage to Alfred L. Jones ended in divorce in 1964. She attended school in Colby and graduated with the Class of 1950 from Colby High School. Helen was a 1954 graduate of the University of Kansas as a Latin major. She was a member of Mortar Board, and later earned a M.S. degree in Education in 1969. After beginning teaching in Colorado Springs, Colorado, at the junior high level, she served as a high school Latin teacher in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Shawnee Mission, Kansas. In 1970, Helen met her soul mate, Donna L. Brady. They made their home together in the San Gabriel Valley of California until Donna's death in 2009. Donna made possible Helen's "second-half-of-life thing," organ-playing study with her long-time teacher, Gary Toops of Mt. San Antonio College. Helen served for many years as the organist at First Church of Christ Scientist, Covina. Gradually, severe arthritis ended her organ performance, as well as active participation in tennis and gardening. Throughout her later life, she continued to follow interests which she had shared with Donna. They loved dogs, reading and following USC football, KU basketball, and Dodgers baseball. Helen was an especially ardent fan of the Classical KUSC-FM music station. She devoted a great deal of time to Bible study. Helen had known Jesus Christ from her early childhood. Wherever she lived, she always formed a church affiliation, although it was not necessarily within one denomination. She sang in the choir with a number of different churches. She could not imagine what life would be like without the organized church. Since 2003, she had been affiliated with the congregation at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Covina. At Helen's request, there will be no memorial service. According to her decision made many years ago, her ashes will be scattered at sea by the Neptune Society.
