Her Legacy… Helen Louise Kamhout, 91, passed away June 13, 2022. She was born on May 1, 1931, in Burnside Township, Michigan to Alexander McMann and Thelma (Vandewarker) McMann. Helen grew up in Brown City, Michigan. After graduating from beauty school, she moved to Detroit and soon met the love of her life, Leonard Garrett Kamhout. They were married on December 2, 1955, in Detroit, Michigan and shared a beautiful marriage just shy of 50 years before Len passed. Helen and Len made lasting friendships everywhere they went including Detroit, Belleville, and Leesburg, Florida. Helen will be remembered as someone who loved life and loved all the people around her. She was a wonderful listener who had a gift for always making people feel special and important. This was part of her amazing success as a hair stylist where clients and co-workers became lifelong friends. Helen will also be remembered for fun times shared, her love of family, spoiling children with love, and her beautiful blue eyes and infectious giggle that made everyone around her happy. She enjoyed spending time shopping, walking with friends, boating, and golfing. Helen was a woman of strong faith who was constantly giving to other people and trying to make everyone happy. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. She will be greatly missed.
