Sister Helen

Our whole CSO and CTA family mourns the loss of our sister Helen.

A reminder that a Memorial Service and Celebration of Life for our sister Helen O’Donnell will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Sat., Jan. 13, 2018, at the Friedman Center, 4676 Mayette Ave., in Santa Rosa. Click on this link to see the official obituary.
Thank you to all of the sisters and brothers who shared their Helen stories. Those will be available on the CSO website soon, and Helen will also be featured in the upcoming Advocacy Appeal available at State Council.
