HUNTZINGER -- Helen Ruth Huntzinger, beloved daughter of Lee and Mark Huntzinger, cherished older sister to Gray and Sarah Huntzinger, friend and loved by all who knew her. Helen passed away Sunday, November 5, 2006, despite the best efforts of the many doctors who tried desperately to save her following a brief, acute illness. God called her home. At the time of her passing, Helen was enrolled as an eighth grade student at Berrendo Middle School, and attending Goddard High School half-time where she excelled in honors courses. She loved her biology and art classes, and delighted in her afternoons at Berrendo where she could relax with her friends and where she was proud to play on the football team as a defensive end. Active and outgoing, Helen loved to kayak and ski. She loved to swim; even when it was too cold for everyone else, Helen stayed in the water. Her first and abiding passion was for horses; she first sat on a horse before she was a year old, and wanted to have her own horse every day of her life. She finally received a horse for her twelfth birthday, and was within a few weeks of having her horse at her home, which was her lifelong dream. Helen was on October 24, 1993 born in San Diego, CA, where she spent the first few years of her life, then moved to Elephant Butte, NM, where she attended elementary school. She started second grade when she was 5 years old. When she graduated from fifth grade, Helen came home to school, and was homeschooled with her brother Gray until she moved to Roswell in December 2005, and reentered the public school system. While being homeschooled, Helen traveled across the country with her family, camping, kayaking and visiting extended family members. Taos was her favorite place to ski, because it has the steepest, most challenging terrain. Helen was never afraid to take on difficult challenges, and she always excelled, no matter what obstacles were in her way. At the time of her passing, Helen hadn't yet decided on a career; she was excited about marine biology and several other possible careers. The whole world lay ahead of her, and she was eager to live her life. She was anticipating the birth of her mare's foal at the time she passed away. She and her friend Lenore Snowden spent many hours planning the horse farm they hoped to own together. Helen is survived by her parents,; brother and sister; grandfather, Edward Hargis of Centreville, VA; grandparents, John and Caroline Huntzinger of Slaughter Beach, DE; aunt, Sudie Hargis of Juneau, AL; uncles and aunts, John and Margaret Huntzinger of Woodbridge, VA, Hugh and Margaret Huntzinger of Denville, NJ; her two horses, Sienna and Buddy; and Sienna's new foal, which will be born any day. She will be deeply missed by all her friends in Roswell, Elephant Butte, Truth or Consequences, and San Diego. We know she is with God in Heaven. She is mourned here on Earth without measure. Viewing and visitation will be Thursday evening, November 9, 2006, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Anderson-Bethany Funeral Home, 2609 South Main, Roswell, NM. Funeral services will be on Friday, November 10, 2006, at 1:00 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 400 West 3rd Street, Roswell, NM, followed by burial at the family home. All are welcome to attend. Donations in memory of Helen can be made to the Assurance Home and James Ranch Youth Shelter, 1000 East 18th Street, Roswell, NM, 88201, (505) 624-1780.
