Obituary for Helen Tyndall Biggers

Helen Tyndall Biggers, of Durham, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on July 25th, 2017 while in the presence of her loved ones. Helen was a life-long resident of Durham and a graduate of Durham City Schools and King’s Business school. She was employed by the Vice President of Business and Finance, and later Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), at Duke University, where she eventually retired.

Helen was the daughter of the late Isom Speight Tyndall and Sis Anne Robertson, and is survived by her husband, William “Bill” Biggers; her brother, Douglas Tyndall; her children, William “Bill” Senter III, and David Barry Senter; her grandson, Brian Senter; her loving Shih-Tzu, Josh; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her siblings, Bill Tyndall, Joe Tyndall, Elsie Tyndall, Margaret Tyndall, and Gladys Tyndall.

Helen was a devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, and close friend to many. She loved reading her Bible, being an active member of Mt. Sylvan United Methodist Church, spending time with her family, being a caregiver to those in need, traveling with her husband and friends, as well as volunteering with the Urban Ministries, and Meals on Wheels. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and those who knew her.

The family will receive friends and loved ones from 6 to 8 PM Thursday, July 27th, 2017 at Clements Funeral Home in Durham. The funeral service will be held at 11 AM Friday, July 28th, 2017 at Clements Funeral Chapel. Reverend Larry Bowden will officiate. Burial will follow in Woodlawn Memorial Park. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude and thanks for the many prayers, calls, and kind words of church members, and friends.
