Helen Rose Broyles April 14, 1924 - July 20, 2018

Helen Rose Broyles, 94, of Fairmount died Friday, July 20, 2018, at Marion Rehabilitation and Assisted Living.

Helen was born on April 14, 1924, in Dover, Ohio, daughter of the late Jacob and Julia (Hochdorf) Linzenbold. Helen came to Indiana from Pennsylvania as a war bride in 1946 when she married Leo C. Broyles. Leo preceded her in death on April 7, 2015.

When her three sons were in school, she took a position at Hedstrom Hi Fi in Marion. In 1960, she was the owner, and it became “The Hi Fi Stereo Shop.” There she enjoyed meeting customers that were as diverse as the styles of music on the shop’s records. She regarded her customers as an extended family and it gave her joy. The Hi Fi Stereo Shop was open from 1960 through 2016, a testament to her dedication to share music and friendship. Helen was a member and past president of the American Legion Auxiliary.

She was as fine a mother as a fellow could have and will be sorely missed by her three sons, James and David Broyles, both of Fairmount, and Charles Broyles, Sunnyvale, California, along with brother, Ronald (Donna) Linzebold, sisters, Doloris (Gary) Bergerson, Austin, Texas, and Jenny Dillman, and several nieces and nephews.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Fairmount Chapel of Armes-Hunt Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 415 S. Main St., Fairmount, Indiana. Graveside service will take place at Park Cemetery in Fairmount on Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018, at 11 a.m. with Father Christopher Roberts officiating.

Contributions may be made in Helen’s memory to Heifers International, a charity ending hunger and poverty, 1 World Ave., Little Rock, Arkansas, 72202.
