    Notes 
    • She was a graduate of the Class of 1923 of Cass City High School, as noted in an article about the Fiftieth reunion of this class that was published in the Cass City Chronicle, Thursday, September 20, 1972, page 12. At the time she was a resident of Sun City, Florida.

      In the November, 1952 obituary of John Corkins, it is noted he was survived by "Mrs. Douglas (Helen) GREIG of Detroit..."

      This may be Helen's husband, Douglas, as listed on the SSDI:

      Although Helen Greig's listing on the SSDI showed her last residence as Bradenton, Florida, her granddaughter emailed in October 2010 that Helen had actually been living in Rochester, Michigan for some time prior to her death. In the 1986 obituary of her sister, Lucile Hewens, she is referenced as Helen Smith, of Bradenton. She is also shown as Helen Smith in the 2001 obituary of sister, Hazel Clark.
