Helen Compton, 86, of Brevard, passed away Saturday, Dec. 26, 2020.
A Transylvania County native, she was the daughter of the late Jackson Summerfield and Ollie Gillespie Heath. In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her sister, Polly Kate Osteen, and her husband of 35 years, Carl Frazier Compton.
She had pride in her Cherokee heritage and enjoyed family genealogy. She enjoyed the youth football league in her younger days and would take care of the concession stand. She enjoyed camping, fishing and spending time at the Outer Banks. But mostly she loved her family....
