Helen C. (Maier) Bates, 96, Wyomissing, passed away Sept. 5, 2008, in the Highlands at Wyomissing. She was the wife of Robert Bates Jr., with whom she enjoyed more than 66 years of happy marriage. Born in Reading on Oct. 17, 1911, she was a daughter of the late Andrew and Mayme Maier. She was a graduate of McCann's Business School and at one time was the past president of the Alphi Iota Sorority, Alumni Chapter. Helen was a longtime member and volunteer of Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, West Reading. Helen married Robert (Bob) Bates on May 20, 1942, in the base chapel at Langley Field, Virginia, while he was in the Army Air Corps. Throughout her married life, she enjoyed the many camping trips they took, ranging from Canada to the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee, not to forget the precious memories of many weekend vacations at Promised Land State Park and Worlds End State Park with the Hoshauer and Grimm families. For the most part of her life, Helen was a homemaker with two wonderful children to show for it.
