Mrs. Helen G. Chapel, 98, of Winston-Salem, died Saturday, May 16, 2020, at her home surrounded by her three children. Mrs. Chapel was born in Winston-Salem on June 24, 1921, to the late Willie Avery and Bessie Eugenia Griffin. Mrs. Chapel was a member of Waughtown Baptist Church and worked at R.J.

She spent considerable time with her family and never complained or spoke negative of anything or anyone. She was a true inspiration to her family and friends. Helen remained very active into her mid 90’s and amazed all with her energy and stamina. In addition to her parents, Helen was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Veach Willie Chapel; one brother, William A. Griffin, Jr.; and her son-in-law, John Wesley Young Wallace. She is survived by two daughters, Dawn C. Wallace of Winston-Salem; Anita C. Toler and husband, Bobby of Bolivia, NC; and one son, Randy Chapel and wife, April of Clemmons, NC.
